Leonard F. Flynn Environmental Scholarship
The NRT Leonard Flynn Environmental Scholarship is a $1,000.00 scholarship awarded by the Natural Resources Trust of Mansfield to a Mansfield student who has demonstrated a commitment to the environment.
Leonard F. (“Lenny”) Flynn was a lifelong conservationist and tireless advocate of preserving and protecting the environment. He was a founding member and past president of the Natural Resources Trust of Mansfield, whose goal is to preserve and protect natural resources for future generations. Under Lenny’s leadership, the NRT of Mansfield, working with the Mansfield Conservation Commission and other agencies, has acquired over 800 acres of land for passive recreation in Mansfield. Leonard Flynn lived in Mansfield for 48 years and died in 2015 at the age of 81. This scholarship is dedicated to Lenny’s passion for land conservation.
We will award this scholarship to a Mansfield student who has evidenced a proven commitment to conservation or preserving the environment.
