Caroline Thompson is also joining us this summer for the first time as a teaching staff member but was once a student in the program. Caroline is graduating this spring from the University of South Carolina with her B.S. in Marine Science and spent a semester abroad last spring at the University of Queensland in Australia studying coastal processes and management. She spent more than a year as a Diadromous Fisheries intern at the South Carolina Dept. of Natural Resources where she tagged sharks, sturgeon and participated in the American Shad Project. Caroline is SCUBA certified and has a passion for field hockey. She has been coaching field hockey for several summers and was a state champion at her high school. We're looking forward to working with Caroline again!
