AMSTI mourns the passing of Reba Turk

The Alabama Math, Science and Technology Initiative (AMSTI) is saddened to announce the passing of longtime science specialist Reba Turk. Mrs. Turk joined the AMSTI team at the University of Alabama in Huntsville in 2004 after a long teaching career in the Morgan County School System. She was an AMSTI Science Trainer, a certified trainer for the Global Learning and Observation to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) program, and a frequent presenter at both the Alabama Science Teachers Association and the National Science Teachers Association Conferences. Ms. Turk trained hundreds of Alabama science teachers and influenced the science education of thousands of Alabama students. She was an incredible asset to science education in the state, as well as a wonderful mentor to so many teachers and new AMSTI specialists. Our thoughts are prayers are with her family, friends and educational colleagues.
