Danielle Cleary earned a dual Bachelor of Science degree in Marine Science and Environmental Studies from Eckerd College in 2015. She graduated from the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School in 2011. For her fellowship project, she will work on a water quality research and education project that will complement research already in progress through the Great Pond Foundation. She will research a complete baseline data set of pond health for four Island ponds and will establish standardized collecting policies. She also will present the collected data in a written report to the boards of each pond organization, the town shellfish groups, the Martha’s Vineyard Commission, the Martha’s Vineyard Water Alliance. Her mentor is Emily Reddington, Director of Science and Education for the Great Pond Foundation. After completion of this project, Danielle plans to earn a Master’s Degree in Marine Chemistry or a related field.
