This year’s Garden Club of Woodbridge scholarship recipient is Laurella Martin, a Woodbridge resident and 2020 graduate of Amity High School. Laurella plans on pursuing a degree in Environmental Studies this fall at Dartmouth.
A peer tutor, scholar athlete, Relay for Life Captain, church choir member and a CT STEM Fair Stockholm Junior Water Prize recipient are among Laurella’s many accomplishments while in high school.
Through Amity’s Science Research Program with UConn faculty, Laurella was twice a finalist at the CT Science and Engineering Fair. A service trip took her to Peru where she worked on environmental issues including digging trenches to provide a pathway for clean water to travel from the high mountains to the lower village. A follower of Greta Thunberg, Laurella was instrumental in organizing the first ever Climate Day at Amity High.
The Garden Club of Woodbridge wishes Laurella well in all of her future endeavors.
