The Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) last week honored The Met Sacramento High School 2012 graduate Jeremy Gray for his co-founding of The Met Bicycle Collective.

Gray was honored during the 2012 SACOG Salutes Regional Awards Program, which recognizes outstanding regional efforts in transportation, smart growth planning and air quality.

The high-profile awards were presented to individuals and organizations whose achievements and innovations made a significant difference in the Sacramento region in 2011 and 2012.

Gray won the Mary Brill Youth Excellence Award. He is now a freshman at SUNY Purchase and was unable to accept his award in person (his brother, Chase attended the ceremony on his behalf).

The Met Bicycle Collective was started to encourage students to begin cycling for transportation and offers on-campus bike maintenance (“The Bike Kitchen”) and safety education to cyclists of all levels.

Congratulations Jeremy!
