2020 Scholarship Winner - Joshua Griffin

2020 Scholarship Griffin

The NRT Scholarship Committee is delighted to announce that Joshua Griffin is the winner of the 2020 NRT Leonard Flynn Environmental Scholarship. Joshua is a student at Mass Maritime Academy, where he is majoring in Marine Science, Safety, and Environmental Protection. His plans are to focus on protecting the environment. Josh has a life-long love of the outdoors and is concerned about preserving and protecting conservation lands, saying he wants future generations to be able to enjoy them as much as he does. ”That is why I am majoring in and focusing my career on the protection of our great outdoors,” he said.
Josh recently worked with the Mansfield Conservation Department, helping to create an inventory of trail systems for the town-owned conservation areas. Mansfield Conservation and Environmental Planner Katelyn Gonyer had nothing but the highest of praise for Josh’s strong work ethic and his ability to work independently on this project. “I believe that Lenny Flynn would have been pleased with Josh’s efforts to preserve the lands Lenny loved so much,” Gonyer said.
The NRT offers heartfelt congratulations to Josh, with best wishes for his continued success.
