2012 Scholar

Zachary J. Brown
University of Montana

Zachary J. Brown
Zach is majoring in environmental studies and climate change studies at the University of Montana. Zach is an avid hunter and fly-fisherman, and with this background he hopes to help bridge the gap in the conservation community between sportsmans' groups and environmental NGO's. He has advocated on behalf of his university's Climate Action Plan as a member of the Student Senate. He was one of three students among 750 of our nation's leaders invited to participate in the Clinton Global Initiative-America meeting in Chicago. Zach is a two-time Udall Scholar, a Truman Scholar, and a Kentucky Colonel.

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.
