Martha Karavitis: Steering CommitteeNatrona County School District #1. I have always been fascinated by a good map. When we were kids, my parents used to give us a road map as we traveled so we could follow our route and not ask the infamous "Are we there yet?" questions. From those formative memories, comes a life-long love of exploring new places and ideas, both in reality and through studying.
