An Albany student told Environmental Protection Agency leaders in Washington D.C. about changes at the East Albany Boys and Girls Club.

15-year-old Cody Mayers was chosen to speak to the EPA and its Energy Star partners this week about the changes the East Albany club has implemented to save energy.

Samsung donated Energy Star appliances and monitors to the Boys & Girls Club as part of their commitment to the Energy Star program.

"We were awarded they appliances after they received our paperwork, they were so impressed what we were doing to save energy," said Michael Nelson, East Albany Boys & Girls Club Unit Director.

"We're switching to different appliances such as the computer monitors behind me, the washer, and the refrigerator," said Cody Mayers, Boys & Girls Club Volunteer.

Cody Mayers has volunteered and worked at the Boys & Girls Club for the past several years. The director said he's a great example for the children at the club.
