The Public is invited to BWP's February General Meeting. There will be a short business meeting followed by an interesting, thought provoking presentation by ETSU graduate student Annie Grant of her assessment of Boone Reservoir water quality. The title of her presentation is:

Annie Grant Bio:
Annie Grant received her BA from University of Virginia in 2011 in Women and Gender studies (minor in Environmental Sciences) and am originally from Blacksburg, VA. She is currently a Graduate Certificate candidate in GIS in the Dept. of Geosciences at ETSU (finishing 2018 winter semester). She moved to Johnson City in 2014. Before enrolling full-time at ETSU, Annie spent the past 6 years teaching Science, Math, a little Social Studies, and even a year of P.E. in elementary and middle schools in Memphis, Austin, TX and then Johnson City schools for 3 years. In addition, she is going on her 4th year of coaching high school Track & Field at Science Hill.
Annie has always had a passion for service, social justice and environmentalism and has searched for opportunities to include kids in the discussions and efforts toward impacting positive change within our communities. In the near future she hopes to enroll in a Master’s program related to watershed restoration and continue efforts toward using Social Justice as a tool to bridge environmentalism and education.
Annie became involved with BWP this summer (once she stopped teaching she suddenly had time for other things!)
