Sharon Curry became Trinity University’s first sustainability coordinator in December 2010. A “tiger at heart”, Sharon received her Bachelors of Science in Engineering Science with a concentration in Chemistry from Trinity University in 1985 and accepted a position with the Facilities Service Department. She currently serves as the Coordinator for Sustainability and Support Services in the Office of the University Architect. Sharon works in partnership with faculty, staff and students, to discover what it means to be, and to grow to become, a sustainable campus. Her experience includes working on Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Certification project teams, developing campus-wide waste minimization and recycling opportunities, including the annual move-out donation effort, as well as supporting curricular and co-curricular activities and promoting sustainability with events such as EcoStop information tabling and the University’s annual Earth Week activities. Previous responsibilities included computer aided drafting (CAD) and building recordkeeping, development and oversight of the computerized maintenance management system (CMMS), project and contract administration, and facilities-related metrics reporting. Over her career, she has embraced and worked to uphold Trinity’s institutional values of discovery, excellence, impact, the individual and community. In September 2016, Sharon was presented the Helen Heare McKinley Employee Excellence Award “for exemplary attitude, innovation, work ethic and credit brought to Trinity University”. In her spare time, she volunteers as a Texas Master Naturalist with the Alamo Area Chapter.
