Scholarships at Tennessee Technological University

Tennessee Technological University in Cookeville Tennessee is very active with the MTGMS scholarship programs.  We have been honored to have annual visits from Dr Leimer along with scholarship awardees and other students.  Dr Leimer has been giving us extremely informative lectures about the activities of the students over the previous year.  Along with pictures and specimens from the activities, we learn the significance and processes involved with all the sites they visit.  We always look forward to having them join us.  Below are just a few snapshots to share the meeting's activities.
