A popular Pittsburgh-based daily newsletter The Incline recently featured Saint Francis University graduate Sarah Yeager '15 in their Who's Next: Environment and Energy article. The article features 13 people who are contributing to environmental progress in Pittsburgh by making it, "cleaner, greener, and more energy efficient."

Sarah Yeager graduated in 2015 with a degree in Environmental Engineering and is serving as a Climate and Energy Planner for the City of Pittsburgh's Office of Sustainability. She is the City's first climate and energy planner. There, Sarah oversees the implementation of a Climate Action Plan that she developed for the City of Pittsburgh.

This spring, Sarah hosted a group of SFU students in her Pittsburgh office. "She provided them a tour of green storm water infrastructure," said Dr. Joel Z. Bandstra, Associate Professor of Environmental Engineering, "it was awesome."

Saint Francis University's Environmental Engineering program prepares students to be leaders in the profession so they may go on to manage ecosystems, restore polluted lands, and protect our soil, air, and water resources. Environmental Engineering students like alum Sarah Yeager want to help people and the environment stay healthy.
