Summer of Learning: Exciting Destinations for Unique Studies

Two of our CHCCS team members have been selected to participate in summer 2013 global graduate studies - one in the West African country of Namibia, and the other in the South American country of Guyana.

Beginning in early August, Phoenix Academy High School staff member Alicia Adcock Bettmann will study great cat conservation in Namibia. Culbreth Middle School staff member Kathleen Krafte will study local wisdom and conservation in Guyana.

The graduate courses from Miami University's Project Dragonfly are based on Earth Expeditions, which has engaged more than 1,400 people since 2004 in firsthand educational and scientific research at critical conservation field sites in Africa, Australia, Asia and the Americas. More information is located at www.EarthExpeditions.org.
