Andrea Wagner was the recipient of the 2017 scholarship which was made possible by YOUR donations to the Mitch Underhill Mountain Fund.
Andrea is on track to graduate in June with an Associate’s Degree in both Wilderness Education and Environmental Technology and Sustainability. For the fall quarter, she made the President’s List with a 4.0 GPA!
Andrea benefitted from the scholarship this fall when she attended a work experience field trip to learn about internships in wilderness and environmental science.
Andrea commented, “It took the intimidation factor away to get an inside look at the environmental agencies in Tahoe and talk with staff. I learned what they do and what would be a good fit for me.”
Not only is Andrea a scholarship recipient, she is already paying it forward and donating to student scholarships! Building on her LTCC education, she plans to continue on to Sierra Nevada College or University of Nevada Reno for a bachelor’s degree with the ultimate goal of living in the Tahoe Basin and working for one of the environmental agencies here.
