Thanks from the Science Olympiad - On behalf of the Science Olympiad Community, Coaches and Staff, I thank you all for your support and volunteer efforts in making this past Science Olympiad a tremendous success!  What you may not realize as you are busy "working the trenches" is how just impactful your efforts truly are to these up-and-coming scientists.  Your contribution to the University is equally commendable as this is, for a good many of the participants, their first "College Experience"...And you have surely made it memorable!  Thanks so very much to my army of volunteers - you are AWESOME!
