Although it pained me greatly, I had to remove several people no longer associated with the program from this area. I would like to just mention friends of the project - Shannon Chapman, Kateri Merino, Tammy Lyons, Cynthia Soto, Julie Schlicting, Julie Kaquatosh, and Marcus Grignon just to name a few.
