In the past year, Jenna Musco
’21 MEM, whose focus at Yale School of the Environment included studies on people, equity, and environmental justice, took her work into the YSE community, offering support and direction to fellow students.
Her efforts earned her this year’s Kroon Cup, which is presented annually to individuals and groups that embody stewardship and implement projects that engage and inspire the YSE community. The winner is voted on by students, staff and faculty.
“Through many crises this year, Jenna has been a constant source of support for her fellow students with special attention paid to those who are new to New Haven and in need of guidance,’’ says Sara Smiley Smith, assistant dean of academic affairs who presented the award to Musco during a virtual portion of this year’s commencement
. “Jenna is a friend to everyone, and her leadership sets a true example for excellence at YSE and beyond.”
Musco helped plan and implement the Community Conversations series, was a member of the Environmental Justice student interest group (SIG), and was student learning coordinator of the People, Equity and Environmental learning community.
