Arctic Directory: Crowley awards $10,000 in scholarships to UAF students

Crowley said Jan. 18 that four University of Alaska Fairbanks students began spring classes with their semester financially covered thanks in part to $10,000 in Thomas B. Crowley Sr. Memorial Scholarship grants. UAF students Rodney Hobby, Lucas Stumpf, Maggie Ann Beans and Amber Jones, were chosen for having outstanding academic records and meeting other scholarship criteria.

Hobby is working toward a major in biology at UAF’s School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences. He recently worked as a seasonal technician on a migration project for the Cook Inlet Aquaculture Association collecting data for future forecasts of salmon migrating to the area.

Stumpf is also a student in the UAF School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences and is studying for a bachelor’s degree in fisheries with a minor in marine sciences. His love of the subject began as a child after participating in salmon and fishing trips throughout Alaska with his parents and three siblings.

Beans is a freshman at UAF who is working toward a degree in electrical engineering. Her aspirations of becoming an engineer started when she joined her high school’s Alaska Native Science and Engineering Program, but it was her hometown of St. Mary’s, Alaska, that inspired her to become an electrical engineer.

Jones is a freshman in UAF’s nursing program, but her hard work in high school earned her sophomore credits. She is currently applying for internships at local hospitals and study abroad nursing programs.
