Camden Middle School teacher Valerie Willis thought it was a big honor to be nominated for the 2011 Outstanding Earth Science Teacher Award and was thrilled to earn the top award for South Carolina. So when she learned that she also received the honor for the whole Southeast region, she was even more flattered. “At a time when the importance of earth science is increasing but the attention paid to it is just beginning to catch up with the need, it is encouraging to encounter teachers such as [Willis] who do so much to bring earth science the recognition it deserves,” said Clemson University emeritus professor John Wagner.
