Project EDDIE is deeply saddened to hear of the death of our colleague, Thomas Meixner, in a campus shooting at the University of Arizona. Dr. Meixner was a leader in Project EDDIE, an active and longtime NAGT member, and a contributor to and reviewer for Teach the Earth, among his many other roles. Our thoughts and heartfelt condolences go out to Dr. Meixner's family, friends, colleagues, and students. We invite the community to honor Tom by sharing their memories, thoughts, and condolences on this message board.
