Congratulations Audrey!

Every year Anglers of the Au Sable awards a scholarship to a deserving undergraduate student in MSU’s Department of Fisheries and Wildlife.  This year’s recipient is Audrey Baetz.  Audrey is from Northville and is a senior at MSU majoring in Fisheries and Wildlife with a concentration in Fisheries Biology and Management.  I had the pleasure of recently attending the Natural Resources Awards Banquet at which I presented Audrey with her scholarship. I got to spend some time with Audrey together with her proud parents.  Audrey this summer will be in a fisheries management internship in South Dakota.  Part of Audrey’s internship will involve an invasive species survey, management surveys, telemetry studies as well as use of aircraft to count fishing pressure.  Sounds like a great summer! Audrey does plan to become a Fisheries Biologist and be a role model for other young aspiring women hoping to enter the same field. Audrey has just started fly fishing and is looking forward at some point to get up to the Au Sable River and do some fishing. Congratulations Audrey and welcome to the world of fly fishing!
