Patel winner of 2017 youth scholarship

The Lost Coast Interpretive Association named Karishma Patel the winner of the 2017 Youth Interpreter Scholarship.

Patel has been a youth interpreter for the past three years and sets an exemplary standard, according to a release from the association. Youth interpreters are high school students who receive training to provide lessons from the Lost Coast Environmental Education Resource curriculum.

“The most amazing and memorable things I’ve liked when being part of Youth Interpreter was making the lessons for each topic that we were assigned to teach and then actually teaching the kids what you know about that topic,” Patel said in a statement.
