Morgan Curtis is an Environmental Engineering major at Dartmouth College, and is spending her junior winter in Jackson as an intern with YTCEC. She first encountered the Coalition while on the Big Green Bus in summer 2011, travelling around the country on a vegetable-oil powered bus promoting alternative fuels and sustainability. She has since driven more than ten thousand miles on biodiesel in her Volkswagen TDI, and joined the National Biodiesel Board's Next Generation Scientists for Biodiesel program as a Co-Chair. Morgan is heavily involved with student activism efforts at Dartmouth, and when not busy talking sustainability or searching for biodiesel she enjoys horse riding, road biking, skiing and yoga.
