Local students Amber Albright and Abigail Franchina received the 2021 Lebanon County Envirothon scholarship, announced May 19.
The Lebanon County Conservation District (LCCD) awards this scholarship yearly to graduating high school seniors who participated in the Envirothon event and plan to study an agricultural, conservation, environmental, natural resource management, recreation or science-based field.
While the amount varies yearly depending on donations, $3,000 was awarded this year. Albright, the top-scoring applicant, received $2,000, while Franchina received $1,000.
Albright is a graduate of North Lebanon High School, now attending the Vet Institute of Pittsburgh.
Franchina graduated from Palmyra High School and now attends Messiah University.
Both recipients will officially receive the scholarships at the LCCD’s next board meeting June 17.
The Envirothon scholarship program is funded both by community donations and the Lebanon County Commissioners’ Marcellus Shale grant program (PDF). For more information on Envirothon, visit the LCCD’s website.
