Essence of Water Quality Management

Teri McBride started her career with the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality in the Remediation Services Division.  During her tenure, she served as a regulatory agent for the State of Louisiana as a Team Leader on multiple media remediation sites including Solid Waste, Hazardous Waste, and Underground Storage Tank facilities.  Terry was responsible for project management of environmental sites from investigation and risk assessment through corrective action.  She acted as a direct liaison between the State of Louisiana and the facility representatives, property owners, and environmental consultants. 

Teri also served as team leader to EPA Contractors on emergency response and surveillance teams post hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Gustav, and  Ike.  She conducted environmental hazard surveillance and remediation as well as environmental soil and water testing continuing through the remediation and restoration of areas impacted by the deadly storms.

After leaving the State of Louisiana, Teri worked as an Environmental Scientist contractor liaison to multi-disciplined industries responsible for compliance to the State Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) entities, EPA, and OSHA Health and Safety Agencies.  In this role, she aided industries with stormwater, air, wastewater, and any other environmental permitting requirements for each governing agency. 

Now, Teri serves as an Environmental Health Specialist for Water Quality in the Health Department for the City of Richardson.  She is responsible for the City’s Pretreatment Program as well as the coordination of the City’s Stormwater Management Program.

RYLA Students
Last week we hosted this year's RYLA students. They were soooo fun! They had so many stories to tell about how they learned to be better leaders through RYLA.
This is an amazing program and if you weren't excited about it before it definitely changed when meeting these 2 high energy students!
Each year, RERC sponsors 2 rising high school seniors for a week at  Camp RYLA - Rotary Youth Leadership Awards - an intense experience put on by clubs and our district, where campers develop their leadership skills while having fun and making connections.

Dallas Children's Advocacy Center
On 8/7 we had the pleasure of listening to a very interesting speech by Dianna Smoot, Director of Community Education at the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center.
In this role, she oversees community outreach to raise awareness on child abuse issues as well as coordinates technical assistance for professionals in the areas of investigation, prosecution, and healing of these crimes. Her team works closely with child-serving agencies across our area to ensure that organizational policy and training are in accordance with best practice, and offers trainings to parents and children alike in an effort to better keep kids safe. Last year alone, the Education Team trained over 100,000 people on child abuse issues.
2019 Scholarships

We finally have responses from all 6 of our scholarship recipients for 2019!

Special recognition should go to mentors Stephanie South and Hieu Huynh for not giving up on their students and pushing them to get all the information that we need to validate their scholarships.  At this point, all we are waiting on are some class schedules from a couple of students so that we can confirm that they are enrolled this fall but otherwise we have all the other documentation required from each student.

In addition to Stephanie and Hieu, Miki Mankin, Laurie Garvey, George McKearin and D Schieferstein are mentors this year and all have actively worked with their students to obtain the documentation and guide them through the process. 

So, a special thanks to all the mentors from Byron, 2019 Scholarship Chairman.
