In 2018, Helen and I established the Wayne and Helen Ranney Geosciences Educator Award at Northern Arizona University. We are pleased to announce at this time that the first awardee is Rhyleigh Abel, a senior in the geology department at NAU. The award allows her to partake in a 7-day, geology-themed rafting trip in Grand Canyon with fellow alumni and professors. 

The award is an endowed fund that takes interest earned to support the award in perpetuity. If you would like to contribute to our goal to encourage professional earth scientists to share their enthusiasm and passion for landscapes with the wider public, you can contribute, at any level of support, here:

Congratulations Rhyleigh and see you on the river!
