Remembering 2014!

 

As we close the book on another successful technical symposium, let's take a look back at the 2014 event!

Wednesday's Incredible Race Student Fundraiser Event was held at the Florida Oceanographic Society's Coastal Center.  The winners of the event were Danielle Marshall & Sam Arden, Dana Dettmar & Mark Lucius and Serge and Barb Thomas.
