Meet CLASS Act Director Colleen Lopez

Colleen Lopez is the new director for CLASS Act. Colleen’s office is located in the Kearney Education Center. The CLASS Act email and phone number will remain the same.

Before moving to Kearney, Colleen oversaw a small environmental non-profit focusing on Solid Waste planning on behalf of six counties for the State of Kansas Bureau of Waste Management. Colleen did educational and community outreach within those six counties by hosting annual Earth Day and America Recycles Day activities, visiting schools and public libraries for conservation lessons and children's literature readings, and environmental grant writing for her surrounding community. 

Colleen moved to the Kearney Area late summer with her husband, Marty Lopez a manager with Union Pacific Railroad, their six children, and 8-year-old basset hound.
