National Olmsted Scholar Winner

Leann Andrews MLA '13

Congratulations to our first National Olmsted Scholar Winner, Leann Andrews! 

Leann was chosen among a select group of 39 graduate University Olmsted Scholars, who were nominated by their faculty for being exceptional student leaders.

In June, Leann will receive a Master of Landscape Architecture with a Certificate in Global Health. She plans use the award to return to Lima, Peru to implement her certificate capstone project: a community gardening and ecological restoration initiative designed to improve nutrition, increase mobility, reduce illness, improve mental health and well-being, and contribute to economic stability and social infrastructure in a distressed informal ‘slum’ community. She will also be starting the Ph.D. in the Built Environment program this Fall.
