What motivates the next generation of environmental leaders?

For Anjali Boyd it’s the drive to elevate the voices of youth, women and people of color in environmental decision making and bring broader perspectives to conservation.

For Avery Davis Lamb it’s the conviction that stewardship is a fundamental expression of faith and the belief that faith communities can be agents of change.

For Cameron Oglesby it’s a love of nature and a desire to root out environmental racism so all people can connect with the natural landscape and equitably reap its benefits.

Boyd, Lamb and Oglesby are three of the outstanding students the Nicholas School is proud to call its own. Their accomplishments, acumen, energy and passion for bringing about positive change inspire us and leave us just a little bit in awe.

We think you’ll be inspired, too, when you hear their stories.
