HCTF-McCubbing Scholarship Winners Announced
The inaugural winners of the HCTF McCubbing Scholarships were announced today at the BC Institute of Technology (BCIT) in Burnaby, BC.
Fish, Wildlife and Recreation Program students Jessie Chestnut and Erin Sowerby Greene and Ecological Restoration students Alecia Lannan and Ryan Lee were each awarded a $5000 scholarship to assist with the completion of their studies at BCIT. The Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation (HCTF) created the scholarships in memory of Don McCubbing, a fisheries biologist who passed away in 2015. Don’s legacy of academic and professional achievements in fisheries biology and habitat restoration included many scientific publications and innovations in fisheries management. Don strongly believed in educating and training the next generation of fisheries biologists through practical field work and technical skills training. He volunteered time training students at BCIT, an institution he believed was a leader in teaching field biology, specifically the Fish, Wildlife and Recreation and Ecological Restoration programs, where students gained practical field experience in fisheries management and habitat restoration. For several years, Don also participated in HCTF’s Fisheries Technical Review Committee and brought a wealth of practical experience and science based decision making to the project review process.
HCTF congratulates all of this year’s scholarship winners, and wishes them success as they pursue careers conserving fish and fish habitat in BC.
