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 2014. Here are the recipients:

  • Lindsey Conlan, a graduate of Holmdel High School who will be attending Princeton University in the fall, majoring in Environmental Engineering. As Co-President of the Eco-Club at Holmdel High School, she made a formal presentation to the Board of Education encouraging sustainable behavior and spearheaded a filtered water station so students could cut down on plastic waste.

  • Amanda Harrold, who graduated from High Technology High School and will be attending Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in the fall, also majoring in Environmental Engineering. She has worked with Engineers without Borders on the Tanzania Water Project, teaching the use of local materials to filter the diminishing fresh water in the area.

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.
