Lander grad gets scholarship from Popo Agie AnglersJun 23, 2017 From staff reports
The Popo Agie Anglers presented a $1000 scholarship check to Emily Fallin, a Lander Valley High School graduating senior, as she heads to Washington State University this fall.
Fallin participated in the Popo Agie Angler's annual scholarship program offered for high school seniors in Fremont County who plan on attending an accredited community college or four-year college or university.
Combined with her essay on her interests in the outdoors, conservation and photography, the group said her dedication and persistence in education made her an outstanding selection for this year's scholarship.
Fallin plans to double major in marketing and photography. Her interest in the great outdoors is based on her growing up in Lander and her experiences with camping, fishing, hiking, backpacking--and combining all of that experience into her future academic pursuits.
"I realize now more than ever after spending a summer backpacking last year in the Wind River Mountains that the environment is directly tied to our well-being, how we can impact it, and how we can find ways to minimize that impact," she said. "Growing up here, we're surrounded by all this incredible beauty and landscape. I am hoping that through a career in marketing and photography, I can reach people in different ways about this outdoor world that inspires me so much."
