The East Hampton Trails Preservation Society has awarded its inaugural $1,000 scholarship to Skye Tanzmann of Wainscott, who is graduating from East Hampton High School. The society is dedicated to the establishment, protection, maintenance, and enjoyment of trails, paths, and natural lands in the town and throughout New York State.
“Skye’s commitment to our natural environment is evident,” the group wrote. She served as president of the high school’s Environmental Awareness Club, and as liaison to and member of the town’s energy and sustainability committee. She plans to major in environmental studies at Harvard.
