BEN NUÑEZ SR. SCHOLARSHIP 2024, sponsored by Friends of Netarts Bay WEBS, now in its third year.
WEBS is committed to supporting students who want to make a positive impact on our natural resources.
Friends of Netarts Bay WEBS (WEBS) works to build a community of environmental stewards around Netarts Bay watershed and the areas between Cape Meares and Cape Lookout. We use educational events, programs and activities, as well as informed scientifically based documents, to enhance knowledge of the important and unique qualities of the Netarts Bay Area. “WEBS is committed to supporting local students who care about our natural resources and are looking to start a career in science and conservation”, says WEBS Executive Director Chrissy Smith.
The scholarship is named after long-time board member, Ben Nuñez, Sr. who passed away in 2022. Nuñez served as the Friends of Netarts Bay WEBS treasurer for many years and continued to be a strong ambassador for the non-profit upon resigning from the board. Ben’s legacy lives on through his generosity and we are delighted to award in his name, multiple scholarships.
