Conservation District Scholarship Winners

The Susquehanna County Conservation District has named two graduates of the Mountain View High School Class of 2007, John Corbin and Ken Jesse, as the recipients of the annual Susquehanna County Conservation District Scholarship award. John will attend Moravian College in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania where he plans to study wildlife biology. Ken is enrolled in Penn State University in State College, Pennsylvania where he plans to study soil science and become an environmental engineer.

John Corbin

     Ken Jesse


Both John and Ken have been involved in the Susquehanna County Envirothon competition throughout their high school careers and have been on the winning team for the past two years, going on to represent Susquehanna County in the state Envirothon competition. They both count their involvement with the Envirothon as a major part of the inspiration that lead them each to pursue careers involving environmental stewardship. Other scholastic activities that inspire appreciation for nature are conservation field trips such as those attended through Mountain View’s Environmental Forum program in which students are able to learn from hands-on experience in the field. In addition to various community and scholastic activities during their student careers, John has also been involved in various 4-H programs and Ken has been active in Boy Scouts.

The Susquehanna County Conservation District awards the $500.00 scholarship to a Susquehanna County graduating high school senior. The student must be enrolled as a fulltime student in an environmental or agricultural field of study for the following fall semester. Proceeds from the Conservation District’s annual seedling sale provide the funding for this award. Due to the success of the district’s seedling sale fundraiser and the increase in qualified applicants this year, the district was able to give two scholarship awards. The Susquehanna County Conservation District seeks to promote environmental and agricultural education for our youth, as they will face ever more complex problems in their future.
