Our thanks and best wishes to Erin

Erin Campbell-Stone, a former Top-10 teacher winner, said goodbye to the Department on Wednesday September 14th after 14 years of running field camp, teaching and research and looking after every Wyoming student taking Introduction to Geology. She will be sorely missed by faculty & students alike, but remembered by all. Besides, she has just moved to a position at the Wyoming Geological Survey, so she won't be far away. We all wish her well on this next step in her career.
