Jeremy N. Doochin
Jeremy Doochin is a sophomore Ingram Scholar at Vanderbilt University majoring in environmental economic policy. Jeremy's discovery, at a young age, of six rare American Chestnut trees in his backyard propelled his extensive work with the Tennessee American Chestnut Foundation to revive the American Chestnut. His early environmental involvement has culminated with his work in high school and college on the boards of numerous environmental advocacy organizations. In particular, Jeremy has worked to lead environmental campaigns directed to educating and involving youth. In April 2008, Jeremy became the youngest member elected to the Sierra Club National Board of Directors.

How can you describe a weekend of student leaders from across the U.S. with an intense passion to change the world? The Orientation was a phenomenal experience to meet and build connections that I'm sure will last a lifetime.
