Whidbey Audubon Society awarded scholarships to graduating students from each Whidbey Island high school.

The society was organized for educational and scientific purposes, including promoting the study, conservation and restoration of birds, other wildlife and their habitats.

One way in which Whidbey Audubon Society pursues this goal is by offering scholarships to students who plan to pursue a career in conservation. The scholarships are made possible from generous individual donations and community support of our fund-raising events.

The 2012 award winners are: South Whidbey: Harrison Price, $1,500; Coupeville: Nolan Exe, $1,000; Oak Harbor: Maura McKole, $500.

Price has been accepted to the environmental studies program at Santa Clara University. His emphasis will be on sustainable urban development, and his goal is to earn a MBA in sustainable business practices, the “green” MBA.

He has two years of experience as an intern in a building design business and he shadowed at a Seattle company committed to renovating its properties to be LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified.
