Reynolds Honors Student Receives NCHC Stipend

Reynolds Community College Honors Student Meghan Clancy has been selected by the National Collegiate Honors Council to receive a stipend for one of the Council's summer fieldwork trips. The stipend will allow Meghan to join the NCHC Partners in the Parks Gateways: New York City trip held June 18 – 23, 2018.

The NCHC Partners in the Park program offers unique opportunities for collegiate honors students and faculty to visit areas of the American landscape noted for their beauty, significance and lasting value. Only a small group of honors students from around the country are selected to participate in these programs. Trips are led by an interdisciplinary group of Honors faculty, and are week-long, intensive experiential learning events featuring a series of seminars on the historical, cultural, and scientific significance of the location. During the trip students also participate in a community engaged service learning project.

Meghan was awarded one of the few available stipends based on her application. The stipend will help offset the cost of the trip. Meghan will be graduating from Reynolds in May 2018.
