My wife Kate met Lily as she was finishing her MS in Forestry at SIU-Carbondale and told me “you need to talk to her, she’s amazing.”
I did, and she is, and we hired her, and Lily Hwang has done amazing things for us.
She’s a brilliant scientist and teacher.
She volunteers time on weekends for environmental education. And works extra hours for Little River Research. A lot of extra hours.
And always she’s kind, caring, and funny, watch the movie.
Thanks Lily, from me and all of us, for everything.
