Homeport Banquet 2017 – THANK YOU!

A CELEBRATION OF WOMEN IN SCIENCE

 

 

 

 

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE FOR A WONDERFUL EVENING!

We are tremendously grateful to our sponsors, guests, donors, friends and family for their generous support of women in science, and of the Center’s research, rescue and education programs.

Special thanks to our wonderful keynote speaker, Dr. Heather Goldstone, Science Editor at WCAI and host of Living Lab on The Point. Her presentation on communicating climate change was both inspiring and informative.

Thanks also to our guest auctioneer, Provincetown Town Manager, David Panagore for keeping the bids coming in!

Proceeds from the Homeport Banquet benefit the Ruth Hiebert Memorial Fellowship, which provides scholarships to outstanding women associated with the Center for Coastal Studies who are pursuing studies in marine science.  Ruth was a long-time supporter of the Center whose passion for science, the natural world, education and her community were well known on the Cape and beyond.

This year the Fellowship was awarded to two very deserving young women, Samantha McFarland (Coastal Geology and Seafloor Mapping) and Leah Crowe (Humpback Whale Studies). Sam and Leah’s outstanding work and dedication to the goals and spirit of CCS are an inspiration to us all, and we wish them well as they continue to pursue their passions.
