AWW loses a member of our family

The AWW family mourns the loss of Bill Peters, AWW monitor, citizen trainer, mentor  and friend.  Bill completed his earthly work on Thursday, October 2nd, 2014.  In addition to his work with AWW and the Living River Center on the Cahaba River, Bill also encouraged young people to get involved with their local water resources. In this blog article from 2012, Water Watching Inspires a Sumter Eagle to Soar, we read how Bill inspired his niece to begin water monitoring on the Tombigbee River – which led to a study project and prizes in local, district and state level science fairs.  We plan to publish an article soon about Bill’s work with Katie Morris, a high school student in Montevallo who recently achieved the Gold Award in Scouting. Our sincere condolences go out to Bill’s wife, Flo, and their children, Donna and Mike. We will miss you, Bill!
