Shippensburg University junior Margaret Dunkelberger has been named a 2019 Newman Civic Fellow for her involvement in environmental advocacy on campus and in the community.
Geography-earth science professor Sean Cornell submitted Dunkelberger’s name because of her leadership positions and the impact she has had on campus.
“I was surprised when Dr. Cornell first told me that he had nominated me, and then while we waited for the results I got more excited and learned more about the program. I’m looking forward to the new skills and contacts I will gain,” she said.
The fellowship focuses on the impact fellows have on their communities, and teaching and improving leadership skills. Dunkelberger will participate in webinars and a national conference during the 2019-20 academic year.
She is most excited for the national conference.
“Getting the opportunity to travel somewhere and meet others who are leaving a positive impact on their communities is what I am looking forward to the most.”
