The Barrington Land Conservation Trust awards an annual scholarship to a graduating Barrington High School senior who demonstrates a dedication to environmental conservation.  BLCT is pleased to announce that the 2021 scholarship was awarded to Noelle Texeira.

Noelle Texiera is a life-long environmentalist who demonstrated her commitment to environmental conservation through her service as president of the BHS Environmental Club.  In that role, Ms. Texiera successfully led a program in which club members cultivated seeds for distribution to BHS students and teachers, initiated a letter writing campaign to politicians about environmental issues, and kicked off an environmental awareness segment on the BHS Sunrise show.  Ms. Texiera also volunteered with the Southside Community Land Trust, assisting with fundraising, community outreach, and farming at the Trust’s urban farm in South Providence.

Noelle Texeira maintained an excellent scholastic record at BHS, where she also competed in field hockey and track and was president of the French Club.  She will attend Barnard College of Columbia University, where she will study biochemistry and French.  BLCT wishes her great success!
