Washington and Lee University junior Tyler Bernard ’23 has been selected as a 2022 Udall Scholar in the environmental category. The Udall scholarship honors the legacies of Morris Udall and Stewart Udall, whose careers had a significant impact on Native American self-governance, health care, and the stewardship of public lands and natural resources. This year’s class of Udall Scholars was selected from 382 candidates nominated by 181 colleges and universities.
“It’s a huge honor, and it feels great to have my effort recognized,” said Bernard. The Udall Foundation will also pay for the scholars’ transportation and accommodation for the annual Udall Scholar Orientation in Tucson, Arizona, in August. On campus, Bernard is an active volunteer at the Campus Kitchen and serves on their leadership team.
“I met Tyler the winter semester of his freshman year,” said Jeffery Kosky, professor of religion at W&L. This summer, Bernard will work on his honors thesis with W&L religion professor Jeffrey Kosky. If you know a W&L student who has done great, accolade-worthy things, tell us about them! Nominate them for an accolade.
