Chad Pregracke Wins CNN Hero of the Year


November 2013

Update: Pregracke wins CNN Hero of the Year!

Read and watch videos in the CNN announcement story.

River environmentalist Chad Pregracke had his audience laughing—and thinking—during a Nov. 13 talk on campus.

The man, who's been a guest at the White House, came into the Rogalski Center Ballroom clad in jeans, sweater and ball cap.

His presentation was as energetic as he is. Pregracke started with a Metallica song, followed with Mississippi and environmental facts (which he claimed was in response to his mother's admonition to "step up his game" during presentations).

What ensued was a rollicking, thoughtful, engaging look at the life of a man who dared to dream big at the age of 23, but who humbly stands by his motto, cleaning up "one river and one piece of garbage at a time."
