    MILFORD - The Delaware Highlands Conservancy, in keeping with its educational mission, recently awarded scholarships to help a local high school senior complete a college program in the field of natural sciences. Kristin Krejmas of Milford is the winners of the 2006 scholarship. Kristin, a senior at Delaware Valley High School, is a recognized athlete, excelling in varsity track and field and cross-country. She helped win the league championship in track and field. Her high school honors include class treasurer, National Honor Society, and the National Society of High School Scholars. She is active in her church choir and in the community working with United Way, Habitat for Humanity, Adopt a Highway program, and ran in the “Relay for Life” benefiting the American Cancer Society. Kristin most recently worked in the office at Kittatinny Canoes. In the fall Kristin will begin her studies in the natural sciences at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. Delaware Highlands Conservancy is pleased to award the Yeaman/Conservancy scholarship to someone who obviously supports their mission and may just find the cure for the invasive “common knotweed.” The scholarship honors Barbara Yeaman, a founding member of the Delaware Highlands Conservancy. These scholarships are made possible through the generosity of the Conservancy’s membership and individual donors. Support of this scholarship effort can be made with a tax-deductible donation to Delaware Highlands Conservancy.
