UNR FIELD CAMP SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS FROM GSN FOUNDATION

NEWS FROM THE GSN FOUNDATION

By Cami Prenn, GSN Foundation Chair

“We’re all hoping things get back to normal soon.  We’re all making plans, then contingency plans, then updating those as timelines get pushed back.  One thing we hope will happen this year is the UNR Geology Field Camp for graduating seniors. Kel Buchanan, Bill Howald, and Bob Thomas are the Foundation Board members charged with evaluating applications and choosing recipients. We’ve heard that they may make some changes to the usual format that would allow Field Camp to carry on so the Field Camp committee went ahead and took applications, read transcripts and letters of recommendation and awarded Field Camp scholarships to two deserving students, Quentin Burgess and Charlie Cryderman.

We won’t be able to award the scholarships in person but Quentin and Charlie have been contacted and we hope to see them at a future GSN meeting to recognize them and hear about their experience. I look forward to having all the students GSN has supported come back as speakers for future GSN meetings!”

A note from NBMG: we have been extremely fortunate to have had Quentin on the NBMG team as a student employee for three and a half years. He will be graduating in May.
