Jessica Williams ’08 of Tucson was awarded a Campus Ecology Fellowship by the National Wildlife Federation to support work on college campuses confronting global warming.

Jessica used the Fellowship to focus on reducing carbon emissions by cutting down on the distance food travels before reaching the consumer. She worked to promote farmers’ markets on college campuses across the country and advocated for local food consumption amongst the college population. “I am currently in the process of writing a Best Practices Protocol for starting a campus farmers’ market with Gale Welter, the coordinator of the farmers’ market through the University of Arizona in Tucson’s Campus Health Department,” Jessica said of her project. “We plan on distributing this protocol to campuses around the country who are interested.”
