Deutsch guest speaker for Wallace State Earth Day event

HANCEVILLE — Dr. Bill Deutsch, professor emeritus at Auburn University and founder of Alabama Waterwatch, will be the guest speaker during Wallace State Community College’s Earth Day events on April 22, sponsored by the Green Team. Deutsch is a researcher with Auburn University’s School of Fisheries, Aquaculture and Aquatic Sciences and recently returned from working on a water project in Kenya.

Deutsch will speak at 11 a.m. in Science Lecture Hall 219 in the college’s new School of Nursing and Center for Science. As one of the top water conservationists in the world, Deutsch will speak about water conservation globally and locally.

Dr. Bill Moss, Director of Student Development at Wallace State and a member of the Green Team, said he expects students and the visiting public will come away from Deutsch’s presentation appreciating the importance of our water sources and remind us of our responsibility to protecting them.

Furthermore, Moss hopes the audience will depart with a greater understanding of how people can inadvertently have negative impacts on our water sources, noting that even the smallest changes can help protect this vital component of our environment.

“Water is finite resource and we all need water,” Moss said. “Through stewardship we can make a difference.”

The Alabama Water Watch is a volunteer organization that works toward protecting our water sources. Its volunteers monitor the water quality of all the major river basins of the state, with a mission to improve both water quality and water policy.

The first 70 students attending the April 22 event will receive a ticket redeemable for a free T-shirt following the event, when a free pizza lunch will be served in the lobby.

  • WSCC farm exhibition.jpg A new exhibition at the Burrow Museum features rural farm scenes

    Dozens of prints depicting rural life are now on display at the Burrow Museum in an exhibition entitled “Days Gone By.”
    The exhibition is on loan to the museum from Grover and Irma Reeves of Vinemont, who have been collecting prints that remind them of the past and, in some cases, their own life for about 10 years. Their daughter Jeanne, who works for Cotton Incorporated, would attend conferences where one of their favorite artists would be selling prints. She would buy some of those prints and introduced her parents to his work.
