Thursday, March 1, 2012

Hello everyone,

I'm excited to be joining each of you on another West Virginia project sponsored by the Technology Department of Cabell County Schools and Marshall University's Appalachian Math-Science Partnership. Learning more about the history and natural resources of our great state has been a great educational experience; I anticipate the summer 2012 trip will vastly increase my knowledge bank.

If the sun continues to shine so brightly and we get an occasional gentle rain, it won't be long before we will be able to get out and identify all those deciduous trees! Right, Steve? I'm looking forward to this week's session when we will get a bit of railroad history and have an entertaining guest speaker.

Be sure and check out the photo/video display Dennis created in the second floor hallway at the Central Office. The display representing the massive Mingo oak tree is very impressive and truly gives an excellent visual representation of the circumference of that massive 580 year old tree.
