KMB Recognized for Exemplary Performance, Standard of Excellence
McAllen, TX (May 1, 2017)– Keep America Beautiful presented Keep McAllen Beautiful with the President’s Circle Award recognition at the recent Keep America Beautiful National Conference, which took place earlier this year in Washington, D.C. The President’s Circle Award recognizes exemplary performance by certified affiliates of the national nonprofit in creating clean, green and beautiful communities.
In qualifying for a President’s Circle Award, Keep McAllen Beautiful has met Keep America Beautiful’s standards of merit by conducting several events and projects to meet their criteria. These events included an annual Community Appearance Index - a tool used by its affiliates to visually assess overall appearance of communities through indicators such as litter. Last year’s score revealed a “1” which indicates little to no litter in the areas assessed. Other standards include calculating the affiliate’s cost/benefit ratio, and administering activities in the areas of Ending Littering, Improving Recycling, and Beautifying McAllen’s Community.
