Letter: Kudos to young scientists


Wow! I love spending time with my kids, but I also love attending community events that showcase our community kids. Last Friday, I had the special privilege of attending the Taos Middle School and Taos Charter School’s science fairs.

What a treat. Our kids are great and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. The ideas, time and research those kids put into their presentations was evident in all the displays. Even a mayor can learn from our kids, and I learned a lot in viewing their displays and talking with them. Their enthusiasm and knowledge is amazing. The teachers seemed proud of their classes and rightly so. Great teachers help make great citizens. I look forward to seeing what these brilliant minds bring to our community.
