The excitement and anticipation of the river project is steadily building as we approach the start of the project. Meetings are being conducted and final plans are being made in order to conduct research and go out into the field. Recent heavy rains in south Georgia have the Flint swolen as we speak, but we continue to anticipate the river falling back within its banks so that our groups can actually spend time on and around the river. I appreciate the hard work displayed thus far from our teachers and students and especially from Mrs. Betty Shiver who envisioned this project and has done most of the organization of it. I can't wait to see the final product our Westwood students will turn out.
