College of Environmental Design graduate students Diego Rentería (M.C.P./M.L.A. ‘20) and Lily MacIver (M.C.P./M.P.H. ‘22) were recipients of the American Planning Association (APA) Foundation’s Judith McManus Price Scholarship, which supports women and minority students who intend to pursue careers as practicing planners in the public sector.
Rentería is currently studying brownfield and river restoration to develop regional park and open space systems in park-poor urban areas. MacIver will be continuing her work exploring innovative planning interventions to reduce air pollution exposure.
Judith McManus Price, a planner for more than 30 years before her death in 2001, served the public sector in a variety of planning positions facing challenges with strength and optimism — her trademark. Her husband, Thomas Price, continues her gift of sharing with a generous endowment to the Judith McManus Price Scholarship to help women and minority students enter the field of planning.
