The AWW Tiger Giving Project Mini-Grant Program was established back in 2017 (through AU’s Tiger Giving Day) to assist AWW certified monitors and monitoring groups with purchasing water quality testing supplies.
So far, thanks to the mini-grant program, we’ve loaned out 11 water chemistry test kits to monitors across Alabama, and one of those AWWesome monitors is Anne Mathews! Let’s get to know a little more about Anne…
