I have a current contract with an NGO to conduct water quality analysis on samples collected from several surface waters in the region. Currently, the Ouachita Water Lab employs one full-time person and two part-time students.
In recent years I have been involved in the Conservation Leaders for Tomorrow program, sponsored by the Wildlife Management Institute. I have completed the Deer Steward II Certification of the Quality Deer Management Association. I am also heavily involved in Ouachita’s accreditation program with the Higher Learning Commission and have attended the last four national meetings of the Higher Learning Commission. In Spring 2016, I participated in the Gardner Institute, a program that aids colleges and universities in identifying “gateway” courses – courses that result in a disproportionate number of D’s, F’s, drops and withdrawals.
