Jeffrey S. Navarro Mentorship Program

jeffrey navarroJeffrey S. Navarro graduated from the Environmental Resources Engineering program at Humboldt in December 2014 and tragically died in a car accident a month later. We at ERE miss him dearly. Jeff’s family, Rene Navarro and Peggy Bryer, has created another way for us to continue to remember Jeff through the Jeffrey S. Navarro Mentorship Program, which supports 2-3 ERE students per year to serve as mentors to their peers. Jeff was a kind and gentle person who made it easy for folks to be around him, always ready to help and dedicated to finishing his ERE degree.

With this mentorship program, the memory of Jeffrey S. Navarro will help more students obtain their bachelors degree in Environmental Resources Engineering. If you're interested in helping us to continue Jeffrey's legacy of altruism, you can make a contribution to the Jeffrey S. Navarro Mentorship Program Fund here.

Navarro Donor Profile
Forever Humboldt published a Donor Profile on their website, giving a thoughtful picture of Jeff's hardworking and generous spirit as well as a summary of the program. Check it out for more information and some quotes from our founding Navarro mentors, Jax Gill and Jason McMack. 

2022-2023 Navarro Mentors

Aidan Wilson


Bio: My name is Aidan Wilson. I am a senior in the Environmental Resources Engineering program, planning to graduate in the Spring of 2023.  I started at Humboldt State University in 2019, right out of high school. I grew up in Humboldt county in the small coastal town of Shelter Cove. My current interests are in Water and Wastewater resources. I've worked as a mentor and a Lead mentor in the First year Retention through Academic Mentoring Program for the past two years and I'm excited to continue supporting my fellow students this year.  Otherwise, I like to be outdoors hiking and traveling, or indoors enjoying shows and gaming with friends.  

Cami Becker


Bio: Hi! My name is Cami Becker and I am a fourth-year student in the ERE program. I am from Ventura, CA and I started attending Cal Poly Humboldt after graduating high school in 2019. I chose this major without a clear idea of what I was interested in, but I am so glad that I did. Currently, I am interested in water quality monitoring and wastewater treatment, and I recently started working as a Student Researcher at the Arcata Marsh Research Institute (AMRI). Aside from studying and working, I enjoy climbing, music, and spending time in nature.
