Two RNR students honored as Udall Scholars

BATON ROUGE – LSU students Jack Green of Lake Charles, La., and Madelyn Smith of Lafayette, La.(junior majoring in natural resource ecology and management), have recently been named 2018 Udall Scholars in the environment category. McKaila Darden of Charenton, La. (a sophomore pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in natural resource ecology and management with a minor in forestry), has received an Honorable Mention in tribal policy. This is the first time an LSU student has been recognized two years in a row, as Smith was selected as a Udall Scholar in 2017. This is also the first time more than one Udall Scholar has been selected from LSU in the same year.

“We send our congratulations to these students for being recognized nationally by the Udall Foundation for their leadership, public service and commitment to issues related to Native American nations or the environment,” said LSU President F. King Alexander. “These three students are actively involved on campus and display stellar academic and research achievements. We are excited to see where they go in the future.”
