Mobile Rock and Gem Society Donates to UMobile Science Department

University of Mobile Associate Professor of Biology Steve Carey, center, accepts a $500 donation on behalf of the UMobile Department of Natural Sciences from Jim Darnell, president of the Mobile Rock and Gem Society. Phil Kaiser, left, past president of the Mobile Rock and Gem Society and a current director of the Society's Executive Board, looks on.

This is the fifth straight year that the Mobile Rock and Gem Society has made a donation to the university. In recent years, members of the Mobile Rock and Gem Society have assisted in the ongoing renovation of the Albert S. Dix Outdoor Rock and Mineral Museum and other related activities. This year, some of the money received from the Mobile Rock and Gem Society helped support students participate in a week-long field trip to study severe weather on the Great Plains and investigate the geology of the region. Carey teaches the honors course “Super Storms of the Midwest.”
