Today I attended the weekly Geology Colloquium at West Virginia University hosted by the Marshall Miller Professor of Geology and Departmental Chair, Dr. Tim Carr.

On behalf of the Appalachian Geological Society it was my honor to present a check to help cover costs associated with the upcoming Field Camp.

We at the Appalachian Geological Society appreciate the ongoing efforts of the Department at WVU as we all benefit from the ongoing research and from the education/preparation of new talented geologists.

Dr. Carr, Thank you and your staff for the outstanding work you provide! We look forward to hearing stories from your students when they return in the fall!
