I want to thank each AGU member for his share of the $800 check forward to the American Geological Institute's Minority Participation Program. You have been kind and generous. Your gift will go directly for the scholarship grants with no overhead of any type charged against it.
We appreciate your gift for several reasons. From a pragmatic viewpoint there is much talent in our young minority people, and the profession, industry, and our country would be that much the poorer for not availing ourselves of this talent.
