Alex Kascak, doctoral student in Dr. Klerks' lab is the recipient of the Ted Beaulieu Sr. Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) Louisiana Scholarship.
In 2007, the CCA was given a generous gift by the family of Mr. Ted Beaulieu,Sr. of Lafayette. It is Mr. Beaulieu’s wish that the money be used to fund an annual endowed scholarship of $5,000 to be awarded to a University of Louisiana at Lafayette graduate student whose work contributes to the understanding of coastal wetlands loss,conservation or restoration in Louisiana or marine fisheries resource management in the Gulf of Mexico region. Ryan received the award for his upcoming research into the connectivity of coastal systems.
Many thanks to the Ted Beaulieu family and the CCA for their support of graduate research in coastal conservation at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. And congratulations Alex!
