Sturgeon Bay resident Georgia Feldman has been awarded a Lowenstine Honors Scholarship to attend Conserve School in Land O’ Lakes, Wisconsin for the fall semester of 2018. This scholarship is awarded on a competitive basis to students who demonstrate exemplary academic achievement, character, and a commitment to environmental stewardship.
Feldman has spent the last two summers working at Crossroads at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay assisting Coggin Heeringa with programs to encourage learners of all ages to be responsible stewards of the environment. She also served as the student representative on the Sturgeon Bay High School Greenhouse Committee, which recently broke ground on the greenhouse site. The greenhouse project intends to connect students with their environment.
Feldman will join a group of 60 high school students who share a love of the outdoors and an interest in studying and conserving the environment. Conserve School’s mission is to inspire young adults to environmental stewardship. The school has been nationally recognized as a U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon School. She will return to Sturgeon Bay High School after her semester at Conserve School. Learn more about Conserve School at ConserveSchool.org.
