On June 21st our chapter awarded $1500 scholarships to two local environmentally minded students. Chapter Scholarship Committee Chairman, David Perdue, presented the scholarships to Jena Cruz (left) and Kelly Lafferty (right). Both young women are Suffolk residents and are majoring in environmental science. Jena will be a sophomore at Longwood College and Kelly will be a freshman at Allegheny College in the fall.
Each award recipient gave a short presentation on how they became interested in the environment and why they decided to pursue there education in the field of environmental science. We wish them both luck in their future endeavors.
