Kudos & Kindness: Thank you from Lake Tahoe Unified School District

On March 30-31 and April 1, we were fortunate to have the first annual South Lake Science Expo at the Lake Tahoe Community College campus for third- through fifth-grade students. This amazing event would not have been possible without the help of so many.

First, I would like to thank the Tahoe Environmental Research Center/UC Davis in Incline (Heather, Amy, Evan, Emily and Bree and the Science Expo team Greta, Rebecca and Bonnie — you are amazing).

The Soroptomist International lunch group is responsible for gifting us with a generous grant that covered the financial needs of this project. Our deep and sincere thanks for this and all that you do for our community. You make this a better place to live every day.

Lake Tahoe Community College hosted this event and were such gracious hosts, helping us in so many ways. We had more than 725 students from five schools and more than 290 people at the public event. A big thank you to the community for stepping up and volunteering time to help man the stations. We had more than 125 volunteers. We could not have done this without all of you.

Thanks also goes to Starbucks, Jamba Juice and Raley’s for providing nourishment and other necessities.

My deep and sincere thanks goes to everyone involved in making this such a success.
