     Here's what an alumnus of Marine Environmental Science has to say:
    "Mr. Johnson is engaging, approachable, clear, and passionate about marine environmental science. We had a great time on the boat with him - and we definitely caught his enthusiasm for getting out into the marine environment! Our final project was not only a great opportunity to learn how to design a research project, but also a great way to spend time every day out on the island."
