I want to personally thank both of you for an outstanding Disaster Management for Water & Wastewater class. This was the BEST class I have taken. You have “Fire in the belly” and that made the class so much better and did not allow a student to get bored. A terrific job!!! I do want us to schedule another one for 2016 back at the same location. Take care and keep doing what you do. Super guys.
