Scholarship winners announced

MCAS has awarded two students who demonstrated a commitment to conservation through involvement, essay and grades a $1,500 Ted Engberg Conservation Scholarship for 2017. Here are the recipients:

  • Mary Finnerty, a graduate of High Technology High School, will attend Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute this fall, majoring in Environmental Engineering in order to specialize in conserving wildlife
    and habitat. Her conservation activities included Monmouth County Parks trail crew, March for Science on Earth Day, joining the environmental club and volunteering with NJ Baykeepers and Bayshore Regional Watershed Council.

  • Laura Rademacher, who graduated from Raritan High School, will attend Rutgers University this fall, majoring in Entomology to conserve wildlife. Her conservation activities included planting
    gardens throughout her home town, supporting the Monmouth County Park System and joining the environmental club, all fueled by her strong interest in the study of insects.

Each of these students received a Scholarship Certificate and a check for $1,500. MCAS wishes them continued success with their study of conservation at college.
