AWRC Program Manager, Erin Scott, set to Move to Ozarks Water Watch
Hello everyone, my name is Erin Scott, and as part of my role with the Arkansas Water Resources Center (AWRC), I have been writing most of our newsletter articles for the past several years. It is strange to say that this will be my last article for these newsletters, as I will be leaving AWRC to join Ozarks Water Watch (OWW) as their Senior Policy and Program Director.
This is a great opportunity that aligns with a growing interest of mine for environmental policy. In fact, I am entering my second year as a PhD student in Agricultural and Natural Resource Policy at the University of Arkansas. I have spent almost a decade in the field of water science, and I’m excited to bridge scientific information with policymaking in the Beaver Lake Watershed.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time (almost seven years!) with the AWRC. I am grateful for the friends and colleagues I’ve made, who have taught me so much about water resources issues in Arkansas and throughout the region. I really want to thank those I work with every day at the Water Center for making my time here fun and inspiring.
My last day with AWRC will be May 29. However, I’m sure I will be in touch with many of you through my role with OWW.
