Over the last six years, Tama has taken the leadership
of the Akron Section Project SEED program. Over that time several dozen students have benefited from this wonderful program, thanks to Tama's care and attention to detail. Tama is stepping down from that role this year and the Akron section is looking for new volunteers to work with this program. If you are interested in getting involved, contact Akron Section Chair, Dr. Charles Kausch <email@example.com
