Recent news and events at ABR.
In the 1990s, ABR began donating to Project Salvador through a Scholarship Program supporting disadvantaged, rural students in El Salvador. In the 25 years of our involvement, Project Salvador has helped provide tuition, bus fares, and school supplies for numerous students interested in completing high school and college. Importantly, these students want to stay in-country and to date about 50% of 65 college graduates have found work in their profession and all of them have remained in El Salvador.
We miss Erin's vitality, generosity, and talent every day. We were so fortunate to have walked with her in this world. Please consider honoring her memory and join us in donating to the Erin K. Johnson Memorial Fund.
The ABR support staff ensure that our field operations, and our every day operations, are as efficient as possible, so our science staff can focus on science. This month we would like to introduce you to Tony LaCortiglia, a vital member of the ABR support team.
