Thanks to Miss Amanda Miller, Apprentice Teacher at Eighth Street Middle, for handling registration; Mr. Michael Herrin and Mr. Hunter Armour, ABAC students, for assisting with set-up, operating computers, and packing up the specimens; Dr. William Moore, Department Head, Forest Resources at ABAC, for providing deer jawbones; Mr. Glenn Williams for assistance in obtaining some aquatic specimens; and special thanks to all the teachers who helped monitor and grade the events...could not have run so smoothly without you!
