In recent news, Anne Twombly, the Green Alliance’s own Marketing Assistant, has been nominated for the NCAA Woman of the Year award. The award is given to a deserving student who shows success during their collegiate career in academics, athletics, service and leadership. With only 10 nominees from each NCAA division, Twombly's nomination reveals her as one of the truly elite in collegiate sports. The award and nominations are set aside for individuals who not only desire to acheive, but naturally acheive as a part of their overall outlook and efforts. A motivated individual, Twombly has proved herself proficient in her collaborative and personal endeavors throughout her years of education. Twombly recently graduated the University of New Hampshire, where she received her BFA in Fine Arts along with a minor in Business Administration. A leader on and off of the track, Twombly shows consistent determination for what she strives for and is being recognized accordingly. 

The Exeter native started her success with the Exeter High School Blue Hawks, where she recieved the inaugural America East Elite 18 Award. Twombly, captain of her university cross-country team, shows an impressive lineup of feats, as she placed first in both the 800-meter race and mile long race during the indoor season, along with a first place position in the 5,000-meter and 800-meter race during the spring season. Undoubtedly an incredible runner, Twombly humbly competes not as an individual, but as a team player of her notably stellar cross country and track teams. A key component in the action undergone season to season, Twombly promoted a winning spirit, further pushing the UNH cross-country team to its currently sterling position.


As the list goes on for athletic accomplishments, Twombly also shines creatively, with an array of visual design and marketing skills. As a new member of the Green Alliance, Towmbly quickly took on a number of marketing roles, with efforts towards a new and improved visual aesthetic for the organization. Twombly’s ideas on consumption and sustainable initiatives agree with that of the Green Alliance, based on acknowledging individual responsibility for ‘being green’. Twombly’s time and effort has been invested in these morals since starting at the Green Alliance, making her the perfect person to join our team of sustainable pioneers.

Twombly encourages any input from her local seacoast community, along with other communities, that may help her to improve the organization as a whole. Any prospective Green Alliance businesses, events or strategies that can promote her initiatives are welcomed, as she is a leader who looks to gain awareness in and out of the office.
