Michelle Zvonkovic earns SFA scholarship
Michelle Zvonkovic of Sugar Land was awarded the Air and Waste Management Association, Gulf Coast Chapter Scholarship at the 2014 Forestry and Environmental Science Awards Convocation at Stephen F. Austin State University.
Zvonkovic, a sophomore studying environmental science at the Arthur Temple College of Forestry and Agriculture, is a second generation SFA Lumberjack. Her parents, 1985 and 1986 graduates of SFA, met on their first day of classes of their freshman year.
While Zvonkovic says her parents did encourage her to attend SFA, they also urged her to follow her passion when deciding on a course of study. Her interest in earth science and its use of chemistry and biology to build an understanding of the earth’s systems ultimately let her to choose environmental science.
In addition to Zvonkovic’s passion for science, she enjoys reading, being outdoors and is the secretary of the SFA Women’s Soccer Club. After graduation, Zvonkovic says she will likely pursue an advanced degree, and believes the coursework and personal attention offered by the Arthur Temple College of Forestry and Agriculture is readying her for the future.
“The classes are hands on and interactive,” Zvonkovic said. “The professors care about you, and the classes are small and personal.”
Zvonkovic is the daughter of Susan and Gary Zvonkovic of Sugar Land.
