My time at the University of Washington has been an exhilarating endeavor of highs and lows and has only gotten crazier as I’ve entered my senior year this year. I am forever grateful for the Spirit of Service Scholarship for alleviating some of my scholarly stress by providing me with financial support. Though my passions and pursuits have changed as I’ve progressed at UW, I’ve never forgotten the people from Franklin Pierce that helped me get to where I am today. By the spring, I will be graduating with departmental honors in Environmental Studies and Political Science with a pursuit in sustainable agriculture and environmental pedagogy. I am proud to be sticking to my Spirit of Service values as I will spend this winter interning for my Environmental Studies Capstone, thus continuing to volunteer for my community. Thank you FP Foundation, and special thanks to McRae, Melvard, Murphy, and Zagar, I think about your teachings all the time.
