This project would not have happened without the expertise and dedication of the faculty and well over 175 graduate students, undergraduate students, staff, and community members who invested their time, talent, and treasure into the SJS initiative.

Pictured below are four graduate students who spearheaded the efforts: (l. to r.) Kaleefa Munroe, Project Data Manager; Cassondra Kellum, Project Co-Director; Colin Ashley, Project Field & Logistics Coordinator; and Andrew Wallace, Project Co-Director.
