2019 Winner – Sarah Swain
My name is Sarah Swain, I am 18 years old. I was born in Florida, lived there until I was 9 and moved to West Virginia for 3 years, then New York for 4 years, and now Maine for the last two years. I go to college at University of Maine in Presque Isle. I will be starting my sophomore year in the Environmental Science and Sustainability degree program focusing on Geology. I have loved to study about rocks since I was 8 years old. It has been my passion to find interesting and unique rocks. I have been collecting them for just as long. My passion for finding more and exploring is never ending.
“I was very excited and overwhelmed that I was able to receive this scholarship award. I plan on using the money to study geology at two national parks in Maine this summer that I have been wanting to explore: Acadia National Park and Mount Desert Island.”
