With advice from his brother-in-law, an engineer, Clinton resident and ’08 Morgan School graduate James Comiskey will be heading to the University of Delaware this fall to study engineering – environmental engineering, to be specific.  
 

“I’d like to work in the energy field, or help companies “go green,”” said Comiskey, who begins his freshman year at the university September 3.  
 

Helping offset the costs of his education is a $1,000 gift from the Clinton Land Conservation Trust (CLCT). The Alice and David Crosby Environmental Scholarship was created in 1997 to honor the Crosby’s, former Clinton residents who were active members of the CLCT for many years. The scholarship is available to any Clinton resident preparing to advance to higher learning in the field of environmental studies. Former winners include Zachary Borg and Hunter Houde – both of whom are attending the University of Vermont – and last year’s recipient Andrew Desrosiers, who is studying meteorology at Plymouth State University in New Hampshire.  
 

The CLCT is a non-profit organization with more than 300 members dedicated to promoting the preservation of natural resources in town. The 40-year old association owns nearly 750 acres. The trust also owns conservation easements on six privately owned parcels representing approximately 20 acres. For more information, visit
