William Andrew (Drew) Cornaghie is a Junior at Vanderbilt University, a Martha Ingram Scholar and a native of Memphis. His topic is a result of his trip in the summer of 2011 to Fiji and the Marshall Islands. This effort centered around the organization of climate change workshops to educate and empower residents of these island nations in the face of rising sea levels. The project was sponsored by the Ingram Scholarship Program, directed by our Board member, Professor Marshall Eakin.
