Madeline Berry History Graduate

A position as an AmeriCorps Environmental Steward awaited Madeline Berry after she graduated with a B.A. in History in 2016.  Her major allowed her to cultivate an awareness of current environmental problems and their connection to the past giving her a unique perspective on climate issues.

The Cambria County Conservation District educates and assists the public through programs, projects and leadership in the stewardship of natural resources to sustain and enhance the quality of life throughout the county. Madeline helped the District provide expertise in soil erosion control, woodland management, wetlands protection and abandoned mine reclamation for landowners and homeowners. They also offer unique education programs such as the Envirothon, poster contest, outdoor education activities, and nature presentations to assist educators.

Editor's Update: Always looking forward, but with a passion for the past, she applied to graduate school so she can continue to study history. She earned her Doctor of History from the Mississippi State University in 2023.
