New Hire and Awards

August 13, 2002

The University of Minnesota Sea Grant Program has hired a new coastal communities and land use planning extension educator, Jesse Schomberg. Schomberg will work with communities in the Western Lake Superior Basin to help community leaders better understand the impacts that different land management decisions have on water quality and community character. Schomberg will work with related programs in northern Wisconsin and the Twin Cities area to provide watershed-based nonpoint pollution education materials and technical guidance to promote community involvement in water resource protection, while accommodating compatible economic growth.

Minnesota Sea Grant’s “Seiche” newsletter earned two awards of excellence in the 14th annual APEX competition run by Communications Concepts, a private business that promotes professional communications practices. The “Seiche” was recognized for excellence in writing and for its online version. Award recipients are Marie Zhuikov, communications coordinator; Sharon Moen, editor; and Debbie Bowen, information technology professional.

Minnesota Sea Grant works with people and communities to help maintain and enhance the environment and economies along Lake Superior and Minnesota’s inland waters by identifying needs, funding research, and translating results. It is part of a network of 30 Sea Grant College Programs spanning coastal states throughout the United States and Puerto Rico.
