Three environmentally impassioned, recently graduated Whidbey high school seniors are the recipients of 2018 Whidbey Audubon Society Renee Smith Scholarships for environmental/conservation study.

They were introduced and spoke at the membership meeting earlier this year.

Aengus Dubendorf, South Whidbey High School, is an accomplished leader in high school environmental activities and will attend Washington State University, majoring in natural resource policy and economics with the intention of becoming an environmental lawyer.

Jordan Wood-Pina, Oak Harbor High School, is a young, nationally recognized sailing competitor who chooses to study marine biology at Western Washington University. She wishes to work with the Department of Fish and Wildlife one day.

Olivia Flack, Oak Harbor High School, has been an environmentally-impassioned volunteer while in high school, who is now headed to Western Washington University’s Honors Program in environmental policy.

The young adults all said they agree that the awarded scholarships bring them a step closer to their chosen goals.

Whidbey Audubon Society is dedicated to the understanding, appreciation and protection of wildlife species and their habitat on Whidbey Island and surrounding waters.
