Ken Sawyer, Board Member – Retired teacher Although raised in NH, I have close ties to the area. My grandmother was a local teacher and graduate of Wilton Academy and her uncle, Dr. York, was one of Wilton’s primary doctors in the early 1900’s. I graduated from UNH with a B.S. in Chemistry, worked as an oceanographer for four years with the U.S. Naval Oceanographic Office, and then returned to school for graduate work in marine science (M.S. San Diego State) and teaching (M.Ed. UNH). For the past thirty years, I taught math and science courses at UMF for TRIO, a federal program for returning veterans and other non-traditional students. My personal interests are environmental issues and responsible care of natural resources. I am a past member of the Wilton Recycling and Parks and Recreation Committees, and current member of the Wilton Scholarship Foundation and Wilton Conservation Commission. Terry and I have lived in Wilton since the early 1980’s. I returned to settle in Maine because of Maine’s quality of life and relatively unspoiled natural environment, particularly noticeable after experiencing the congestion and air pollution of Washington, D.C. and southern California. I feel that the work FOWL is doing is tremendously important for Wilton’s lakes and natural areas and am pleased to be able to contribute as needed.
