JCWA’s annual scholarship for 2014 was awarded to Rachel Miller of Connellsville Area Senior High School.  In the picture, she is seen accepting the award from JCWA President Mike Barrick and Vice President Kristina Tarasan.  The $500 scholarship is awarded each year to a graduating senior whose school is located within the Jacobs Creek watershed and who will pursue studies in environmental sciences or a related field.  Congratulations, Rachel!
