Reece C. Lyerly
Reece is a third-year earth and environmental sciences major at Furman University. Reece enrolled in his first environmental science class because of the required weekend camping trips, but soon discovered a passion for researching and studying the natural world. Initially an avid hiker and adventurist without a cause, Reece is now an informed environmentalist seeking to couple his passion for science and social justice. On campus, Reece is known for his enthusiasm and commitment to sustainability. Ultimately, he wants to pursue a career in environmental public health focused on issues related to climate change in the developing world.

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.
