Dr. John C. Jahoda Memorial Intern Fund

NECWA is honoring a dear friend by starting a Memorial Intern Fund in his name. From Krill, our President, “John and I worked closely together at Bridgewater State University (BSU) since 2000. He was one of the few professors who would take on someone like me (a woman, a part-time professor, a professor with only a Masters degree) and collaborate with me and our BSU students on various projects, including those on whales, seals, sea turtles, ocean sunfish and basking sharks. He was the marine connection for students at BSU and he provided real-life learning opportunities, both in and out of the classroom, for his students in his classes. He treated me and others with respect and kindness and focused on a person's potential, not their shortcomings. John collaborated with me and other NECWA staff members and interns on many projects, helping us achieve and often exceed our research and educational outreach goals. No matter what projects we worked on together, he provided the positive can- do attitude as well as the support and know-how that was needed. What an incredible experience for me, my staff and those interns, students and volunteers who had the good fortune of taking a class with John or participating in research under his direction whether through BSU or NECWA.”

Update on Equipping the 2021 Interns

While we were able to raise over $600 and received some generous in-kind gifts from our supporters, we are still very far behind in our funding for this season. If you have the ability to donate or to purchase equipment for us we appreciate it greatly.

Here are some of the items we still need — you can visit our Amazon Charity List to see more.
