Christina McMillan Receives Audubon Community Nature Center Scholarship

  Contributed by Audubon Community Nature Center Audubon Community Nature Center awarded its 2018 Ryan Exline Memorial Scholarship to Christina McMillan of Jamestown, N.Y. McMillan is a 2018 graduate of Jamestown High School who will begin studying environmental engineering at Cornell University in the fall. Deeply interested in the natural sciences, she was active in Jamestown High School’s Environmental Club and enjoys hiking and gardening. Her goal is to have an engineering job focused around wildlife preservation and habitat restoration. Every spring since 2003 Audubon’s Education Staff has raised scholarship funds through their Fledgling Birdathon. Participants look for as many species as possible over a 24-hour period, and generous supporters pledge an amount, either per species or in total. The end result is a $500 scholarship. This scholarship is named in memory of one of its very first recipients. Ryan Exline was an integral part of the Audubon family for many years, where he assisted with gardening, eagle care, live animal care, and educational programs. A resident of Russell, Pennsylvania, he was pursuing a master’s degree at Duke University when he died in a car accident. His love of nature and of nurturing future generations of “nature nerds” lives on through this scholarship. Scholarship applicants must be local residents pursuing a degree in the natural sciences. Recipients must be passionate about the natural world. Previous scholarship winners are Heather Zimba, Taylor West, Brandon Allen, Connor Clendenen, Allison Cramer, Alex Kulakowski, Elyse Johnson, Brenton Maille, Alyssa D’Alessandro, Alexa Vazquez, Tricia Bergstue, Karen Eckstrom, Bill Langworthy, Rex Everett, Ryan Exline, and Eve Gaus.
