Devin Domeyer, daughter of Dean and Susan Domeyer of Southport, was recognized with two awards at the Muhlenberg College Honors Convocation which took place on Sunday, April 30.

At the awards ceremony Devin received the National Udall Undergraduate Scholarship, which is given to college juniors for leadership, public service, and commitment to issues related to the environment or Native American nations. In 2017, the Udall Foundation awarded a total of 60 scholarships to college students across the United States. The Udall scholarship honors the legacies of Morris Udall and Stewart Udall, whose careers had a significant impact on the stewardship of public lands, natural resources, and Native American issues.

Devin also received The Mulenberg College President's Award For Outstanding Academic Achievement And Promise For Postgraduate Study By A Junior. This award is given to up to three juniors who present outstanding personal essays and project statements, and who then successfully complete an interview. The awards are intended to provide exceptional students with an opportunity to work with an elite advisor, and to prepare for competition for national and international awards including the British Marshall, Fulbright, and National Science Foundation. Students may be from any major and must have a minimum 3.4 grade point average overall.

A senior next year at Mulenberg college in Allentown, Pennsylvania, Devin is majoring in environmental science with minors in both political science and sustainability.
