Dear Donors and Supporters,
I can't believe it's already May! It seems like it was just yesterday that we were planning our semester kick-off meeting. This has been a very busy spring for EDGE: We had our 3rd annual Benefit Concert and "Swap and Bop," held elections for our new administrative board, finalized our projects, and decided on our new batch of travelers...
Speaking of, I am incredibly proud to announce that EDGE will be sending 2 of our "EDGE Boys" to the Island this summer! Led by our expert traveler, Karla Lund (who traveled to the island twice), Paul Atwell and Sam Matthews are ready to move to the implementation stage of their research projects. As the team leaders for the Agriculture team and the Environment team respectively, their projects include creating an irrigation system at the secondary school, a composting program, and a school garden. Sam wrote up a great blog post about EDGE's summer goals on the island. Check it out here: http://svmatthews.blogspot.com/
Coincidentally, Sam and Paul are also the newly elected Co-Directors for next semester! Their experiences on the island will undoubtedly be beneficial to the future leadership of the EDGE Project, especially because many of our travelers are finally graduating--including myself!
Thank you all for your support this semester! Don't forget to check out our blog this summer for updates on travel, events, and all things EDGE! http://www.wisconsinedgeproject.blogspot.com/
