Dr. Rhonda Burrough and Twilight

At Twilight on the Prairie! last Saturday, Katy High School teacher, Dr. Rhonda Burrough was honored for all her work with the school's Tiger Prairie and the student engagement with that project. She was joined by Samuel and Trevor, two of her students. The young men spoke enthusiastically about their environmental club and how they grew from working on the pocket prairie. They are learning so much! It has changed their lives and has influenced their decision about going into some sort of environmental science major because of it.
