Congratulations to MARINA Lab member Marisa Nixon who was recently awarded a Marc Hershman Marine Policy Fellowship in recognition of her dedication to local coastal issues and leadership experience. The fellowship honors Professor Marc Hershman, whose expertise in ocean policy and governance made him an exceptional mentor and former director of the School of Marine and Environmental Affairs. The Hershman Fellowship will give Marisa the opportunity to work on pressing coastal issues at her host office, the Washington State Department of Ecology and Health. Congratulations, Marisa!
