MADISON, Ala. (AP) - An Auburn University senior from Madison has received a scholarship for his environmental work in Alabama.

The Opelika-Auburn News (https://bit.ly/1EfVmzr ) reports Arthur “Joe” Jenkins has been awarded with the Udall Scholarship for Excellence in National Environmental Policy. Jenkins is one of 48 nationwide recipients and the only one from the state of Alabama.

The Udall Foundation wrote in a web post scholars are selected on the basis of commitment to careers in the environment, leadership potential and academic achievement.

Jenkins has done research over the past two years for the school’s Alabama Natural Heritage Program and for the U.S. Forest Service on two of Alabama’s endemic and endangered species, the flattened musk turtle and Black Warrior waterdog.
