U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur, (D-Toledo) presented Lutheran Homes Society (LHS) with LEED® Silver Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council for its high performance, green school building at 40 S. Wheeling Street.

The LHS building has been home to the Alternate Learning and Career Center-East since fall of 2008.

The building is the first school in Northwest Ohio to be LEED certified at any level. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a rating system developed by the U.S. Green Building Council that is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance, green buildings.

In Ohio, the LHS building is only the second school to receive LEED Silver Certification and the first in the state to be designed by an Ohio architectural firm. The architect for the project was Buehrer Group Architecture & Engineering Inc. in Maumee, Ohio.
