June 1, 2017 - Gabrielle T. Camp, 20, of Highlands Ranch, Colorado, has been named the 2017 recipient of the $2,000 Peter Wolfe Memorial AANR-West scholarship, which is named in memory of the former member of the AANR West Scholarship Committee. Gabrielle is the daughter of James H. (Henry) and Joanie Camp of Mountain Air Ranch. She was also the recipient of scholarships from both AANR-West and the AANR Education Foundation in 2016, and from the AANR Education Foundation again in 2017.
Gabrielle graduated from Mountain Vista High School in Highlands Ranch in 2016, and is now starting her sophomore year at the University of Alaska (Fairbanks). This last academic year she was enrolled in the university’s honor program and was the recipient of a Chancellor’s Scholarship. Her main interests are wildlife, biology, and zoology.
In 2011 she traveled to Costa Rica to rescue sea turtle eggs, and last summer she worked with Moose Mamas – a moose calf rescue organization in Alaska. She is also certified in bear safety. She enjoys hiking, camping, and rock climbing, and holds a black belt in tae kwan do.
She plans to obtain her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in wildlife biology and then become a wildlife researcher or caretaker.
The 2017 AANR West Scholarship Committee members were Charles Noyes, Beverly Price, Jim Sturges, and Oliver Ellsworth. All are nudist leaders in the AANR western region. The winner was chosen from those submitting scholarship applications from January through March of this year. Academic institutions were contacted to verify GPA and other school achievements. The home clubs of all applicants were contacted to verify AANR membership by the applicant (if over age 18), or a parent or grandparent of the applicant. Applicants also had to complete a thousand-word essay, “What Nudism Means to Me.”
