Congratulations to Christopher Snyder, an anthropology major in the Class of 2017. The Paterson Alliance gave him an Extra Mile Award at a luncheon on May 11, 2017. Snyder was recognized for his outstanding contributions during a City Green internship that he completed in the summer of 2016.
During his internship, Synder worked closely with Montclair State alumna Claudia Urdanivia and the experience was supported by a Bigel Grant. At City Green, Snyder acted as a docent and conducted research on best practices for establishing community gardens. This summer, he will put that research into practice working with community partners in Orange to build a new community garden along with a fellow anthropology student, Warren Bristol.
This fall, Snyder will return to Montclair State to pursue a Master's degree in Public Health.
