Meet the Panelists
The recycling coordinator for University of Nevada, Las Vegas is the foremost expert on industrial recycling and how to reduce waste. In fact, Pike-Nordstrom began championing green living as an environmental studies undergraduate student at UNLV in the late ’90s and soon put her master’s thesis into action when she founded the Rebel Recycling Program in 1995. Since 2003, she’s helped the campus recycle more than 5,600 tons of material but she’s nowhere near her goal to make UNLV a zero-waste campus where all trash is either recycled, reused, or composted.
A lifelong resident of Las Vegas, Joseph Jolley earned his BS degree from UNLV in Hotel Administration. Joseph is the father of six children. After being a scout master for seven years, he is currently a merit badge counselor for The Boy Scouts of America.
