Students Sponsored to Attend RMMLF Air Quality Issues Affecting Oil, Gas and Mining Development

The ENRGP Program has selected to sponsor four students' admission to the  Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation's special institute on Air Quality Issues Affecting Oil, Gas and Mining Development next week!

The Air Quality Issues special institute will provide attendees with a thorough understanding of current air quality law, policy, science and public perceptions. These issues will be considered in the specific context of oil, gas and mining. The Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation said, "All attendees will leave this conference with the most current information about air quality and energy and with tips and insights that they can actually use in fulfilling their responsibilities."

The four students selected were: Caleb Harrison, Annie Oman, Darracott Osawe (featured here in our blog) and Ty Nagamatsu. Each of these students demonstrated a keen interest in air quality issues and had a clear vision of the benefits they would receive from the conference.

Caleb Harrison, MRLS '13, commented, "Living in Colorado, it has become obvious that there is a need to develop and maintain healthy and appropriate natural resource policies for local communities, the state, and for the nation. I believe the conference would benefit me; the practical aspects of the conference would complement my academic understanding of the pertinent issues."

Congratulations to the winners!
