Nice to see this.

The Morris K. Udall Foundation recently announced the award of a $5,000 scholarship to Williams College junior Julia Sendor for “her dedicated commitment to impacting environmental research and public policy on a national and international scale.” She was one of 80 students nationwide to win the award.

Sendor, a native of Chapel Hill, N.C., has always been a nature lover, choosing to attend Williams College, located in Williamstown, Mass., in part, “because of the snowy mountains and maple syrup.” Her experiences working with the Williamstown Rural Lands Foundation during the summer of 2005 really cultivated this love into a passion for environmental studies.

“As I learned not only about plants and animals, but also the history, politics, and people of the northern Berkshire environment of Williamstown, I realized how rich and all-encompassing ‘environmental studies’ is – and how all the interconnections between people and land could keep me fascinated for a lifetime of studying,” Sendor said.

Great stuff. I hope that Sendor writes a senior thesis on some aspect of the Williamstown area. There is so much that we need to know, so much that hundreds of Ephs would enjoy reading about.

Veteran readers will recall that we first met Julia here. The years they are a flying.
