Scholarship Award Presentation

November 7 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Join us as we recognize the recipients of the 2018 Wild Things Scholarship. All are welcome.

On Wednesday Nov. 7 2018, Nature Newfoundland and Labrador will recognize two Memorial University students for their volunteer efforts.

Non-profit organization Nature NL, which promotes the enjoyment and protection of wildlife and natural resources in the province, will present the Wild Things Scholarship at an event on the St. John’s campus. The scholarship recognizes the enthusiasm and efforts of post-secondary students whose volunteer activities have helped conserve or enhance nature in Newfoundland and Labrador.

The organization presents one scholarship annually, but this year, chose to award two.

The award was funded by Wildland Tours and St. John’s businessman Dave Snow, a well-known conservationist in Newfoundland and Labrador and an alumnus of Memorial University.

When he passed away in 2017 the group decided to award an extra scholarship this year in his memory.

To date, the scholarship has awarded more than $25,000 to students.

This year’s recipients, Alexandra Hayward and Kelly Young, both have a long history of volunteering, and a deep desire to leave the province in better shape than they found it.

Alexandra Hayward is from Mount Pearl and will complete a B.Sc. in biology with a geography minor in spring 2019. She hopes to pursue studies in environmental law.

Kelly Young is from Stephenville. She completed a B.Sc. in biology with a geography minor in 2016 and is currently
working on a Master of Environmental Science at Memorial.
