Above and Beyond the Call of Duty!

In the blistering heat of summer Dr. Salas and Ms. Travers took it upon themselves to work on the MMS Fish Pond in the quad.  With the sun beating down, they pulled out overgrown reeds, back-washed the water and watched the frogs jumping in and out of the pond. There was a very active and happy response from the fish and frogs.

It is a wonderful thing when people see a need, roll up their sleeves and take care of it.  Thank you ladies for caring, giving up your time, and making a difference!
