Elizabeth (“Liz”) Brajevich is the 2016 CANR Outstanding Student Leadership Award winner.

 

As an environmental economics and policy (EEP) major, Liz has a passion for the environment. This is evident in the major she chose and her involvement with the Residential Initiative on the Study of the Environment (RISE). She has presented at the University Undergraduate Research and Arts Forum and at a Greening the Supply Chain Conference.

 

Liz was a vermicomposting grant team leader who led the way in implementing an effective system to compost cafeteria food waste using worms. She has earned several scholarships over her four years in the CANR, including the EEP Ralph and Patricia Hepp Scholarship, and the Hal and Jean Glassen Wildlife Conservation and Stewardship Scholarship.

 

She was named a Demmer Scholar and was one of two MSU representatives at the 2013 International Student Summit on Food, Agriculture and the Environment in Tokyo, Japan. Last year, Liz was named one of Glamour magazine’s Top 10 college women.
