Sea Grant educator receives environmental education award

Brandon Schroeder, Michigan State University District Sea Grant Extension educator, received the Bill Stapp Award Oct. 8 at the Michigan Alliance for Environmental and Outdoor Education (MAEOE – one of my favorite acronyms) Awards Banquet.

 The MAEOE bestows the William B. Stapp Award on only one individual each year who has made outstanding contributions to environmental education in Michigan, exemplifies the best in the field of environmental education, demonstrates a lifetime of devoted service and has spent at least 10 years working in Michigan.

 Some of Brandon’s nominating letters describe him as “an inspiring leader,” “a great partnership builder,” “humble, considerate and respectful” and “one of the most dedicated supporters of environmental education that I have met.” One supporter wrote, “Brandon has a wonderful way of transferring his knowledge of the environment to students and the general public in a way that not only generates interest, enthusiasm, and involvement – but is logical and easy for them to understand.” I would add that he’s a pretty good fisherman, too.

 Congratulations, Brandon!
