SMU Student Wins Nissan-WWF
Environmental Award

Richard Taplin Moore, an SMU electrical engineering major, was selected as one of 18 college students to research environmental issues in Washington, D.C. and South Africa through a new Environmental Leadership Program.

The program was developed by Nissan North America and World Wildlife Fund. Each student receives a Nissan-WWF Environmental Leadership Award, which includes $5,000 and an opportunity to participate in both a four-day environmental summit in Washington D.C. and an all-expenses-paid research expedition to South Africa.

The program aims to empower young leaders on college campuses to become effective advocates for the environment.
