Mountlake Terrace woman heading to Galapagos

Kiersten Hurst, of Mountlake Terrace, has received a Summer Credit Workshop Study Abroad Scholarship from Miami University’s Global Initiatives office to help fund travel on a summer 2018 Earth Expeditions course to the Galapagos Islands.

Hurst was one of three students selected from 61 applicants. She is a master’s student in the Advanced Inquiry Program from Project Dragonfly at Miami.

This summer she will study the forces of evolutionary, geologic and social change through work with Ecology Project International, a nonprofit, educational organization that works with the Galapagos National Parks Service and others on ecological education in the Galapagos Islands.
