A U of S student and recent scholarship winner has been recognized by Corporate Knight, a magazine that promotes "clean capitalism" and is focused on the intersection of business and society.
Alana Krug-MacLeod, 19, was named one of Canada's 30 under 30 in sustainability. An educational expedition to Antarctica at age 14 led Krug-MacLeod, an environmental biology student in the College of Arts and Science, to initiate and support sustainability projects and research, both locally and abroad. Valued by her colleagues for her work ethic, integrity and commitment, Krug-MacLeod has also won the Gordon Barnhart President’s First and Best Scholarship. Earlier this year, Krug-MacLeod was named the recipient of a Schulich scholarship, valued at $60,000.
"One thing ecosystems teach us is that everything is connected and every bit—of matter and of change—makes a difference," she told the magazine. "Each person can, and must, choose how to influence this world. No action affects only oneself. Learn this and sustainability becomes our common self-interest."
