Each year the Northeast Pennsylvania Audubon Society presents a $4000 scholarship to a graduating senior who plans to pursue a career in an environmental field. The funding for the scholarship is generated from the annual Art and Craft Festival.
Brian Mattern of Clarks Summit is this year’s college scholarship winner. He is a 2011 graduate of Abington Heights High School and will be attending the University of Delaware to major in environmental engineering. Brian commented, “My goal is to help develop new ways to help the environment. I’m very grateful to the Audubon Society. I hope to represent them well in my studies and career.”
