Environmental consultant to deliver Apple Day address at PSU

Ruth Stinson, founder and CEO of the Stinson Environmental Group in Lenexa, Kan., will deliver the keynote address at the 100th commemoration of Apple Day at Pittsburg State University. The address will be part of an all-campus convocation at 3 p.m. on Thursday, March 1, in McCray Recital Hall. Apple Day is a century-old tradition at PSU commemorating an event early in the school’s history that helped secure its future.

Stinson, one of the first graduates of PSU’s Environmental Studies Program, earned a Bachelor of Science degree from PSU in 1978. She spent several years with Burns and McDonnell Engineering Company in Kansas City. She then attended the Colorado School of Mines, where she was one of the first women to get a Master of Science degree in mining engineering.

Stinson practiced environmental consulting in Colorado and Texas before moving to France for a time. In 2003 she returned to Lenexa, Kan., where she started the Stinson Environmental Group. Stinson is a registered, professional engineer with more than 25 years experience in environmental management and consulting.

The Stinson Environmental Group provides experienced scientists and engineers to work with companies to obtain and comply with environmental permits. Their services include environmental plans and permits, engineering and compliance projects. The Stinson Environmental Group works with electric utilities, quarries, landfills, manufacturing facilities and local government throughout Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska. They are currently launching a new software product to help firms manage environmental, health and safety requirements.
