Congratulations to all the student award and scholarship winners in ECo! We celebrated their accomplishments on beautiful May afternoon at the Young Men’s Club in Hadley, with food, laughter, and outdoor games. The awards recognized both academic excellence and engagement on the campus and beyond. The award recipients included a total of 77 students in BCT, ENVISCI, NRC and graduate students in ECO and OEB. We are proud of them, and also grateful for the many donors who made these awards possible.
