Margaret Danehy2

Scholarship chair Deborah Snyder
with winner Maggie Danehy

The Leonard F. Flynn Environmental scholarship for 2019 was awarded to Mansfield High School senior Margaret Danehy, who plans to pursue a degree in environmental engineering at the University of New Hampshire. In her senior year, Maggie became especially interested in marine biology. She learned of the harmful impact climate change has on coral reefs, and she became interested in projects that create artificial reefs to preserve aquatic habitat.
In her senior year, Maggie was a student in Advanced Placement Biology. Aside from academics, Maggie showed her commitment to the environment through a variety of activities. She created and posted flyers in school and around town to increase awareness of problems climate change causes on coastal communities. She started a petition asking Dunkin donuts to end the use of Styrofoam cups because of their harm to the environment.
We wish Maggie luck in her future endeavors.
