Letter to the Editor: Cast Your Vote for Michelle Hall

By Morris B. Pongratz
Former County Councilor and School Board Member

I recently went to the County Clerk’s Office to vote in the UNM-LA Advisory Board election. I was only the fifth person to vote!

I know that this election may not be at the top of your radar screen, but elections are important so I urge folks to study the candidates and please vote!

One candidate, Michelle Hall, was recently honored by the American Geophysical Union (AGU) with the 2012 Excellence in Geophysical Education Award at the AGU Fall Meeting Honors Ceremony, held Dec. 5, 2012 in San Francisco, Calif.

The award honors “a sustained commitment to excellence in geophysical education by a team, individual or group.”

You may know that Michelle has been running the very successful Café Scientifique program for high school teens in Los Alamos and other northern New Mexico locations.

You may not know that Michelle is the daughter-in-law of one of my dear friends, Jeannette Wallace.
