Congratulations to Kamrie Sarnosky for being named the 2019 Recipient of the National Capital Chapter Janet Sprickman Scholarship courtesy of the American Society of Safety Professionals Foundation. This is a a $1,000 scholarship sponsored by our chapter through the foundation.
“I became interested in environmental health & safety because I grew up in a third generation military family. Service members are a distinguished population with unique environmental exposures during their daily jobs, and I am interested in keeping them as safe and healthy as possible. After graduation, I hope to go into a research position for continuous improvement of mitigating hazardous environmental exposures.”
Kamrie is enrolled in a Doctor of Environmental and Occupational Health program at Texas A&M University.
This scholarship is named after the 1971-72 National Capital Chapter President, Janet H. Sprickman, who was a pioneer in the safety and health field as evidenced by her significant professional career at a time when women were rarely given high level responsibilities or opportunities.
