Eatonville resident Kimberly Dewey is one of four recipients of the 2023 Dragonfly's Inquiry, Community, Voice Scholarship. Created in 2021, the scholarship supports Dragonfly students who are committed to furthering the fields of inclusion, diversity, environmental justice and other related fields using innovative and relevant approaches to conservation.

Dewey was a formal secondary science educator for 15 years. She is transitioning her talents towards projects that are dedicated to promoting social and environmental justice. Since joining the Miami University Advanced Inquiry Program in 2022, Dewey has taken courses on the web from Miami University while also participating in experiential learning on the grounds of the Woodland Park Zoo, Point Defiance Zoo and Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge. This summer Dewey will work to build strong partnerships with her local tribal community, professionals and community leaders on projects that directly contribute in specific ways to her master plan.

Since 2009, Dragonfly graduate students have received more than $62,000 in scholarship funds. Learn more about these scholarship opportunities, by visiting the Dragonfly Scholarships webpage.
