The 2022 Katherine McKenna Scholarship in the amount of $1,500 was awarded to Jordyn Ponchione.
Jordyn attends Slippery Rock University with a major in Parks and Resource Management and a minor in Adventure Fitness with a concentration in Sustainability. Jordyn hopes to one day be an Interpretive Park Ranger.
"I'm passionate about environmental education. Interpretive Rangers are the teachers of the outdoors, as they explain history on a specific area and demonstrate the science behind each part of that ecosystem – all while making it fun and enjoyable. Interpretive Rangers encourage good 'nature' habits and demonstrate how to be aid to the environment instead of harming it."
"The goal is to teach others without them realizing they are learning. It took me a long time to realize I can use my love of nature for a career path and not just a hobby. Many thanks to my family and friends, my teachers, and to the Greensburg Garden Center."
Congratulation Jordyn! We wish her much success in her choice of career paths!
