We’re bidding a fond farewell to this summer’s water-quality interns, affectionally known as “Swim-terns!” These two, Rachel Geyer (on the Neuse) and DaNisha Harris (on the Tar-Pamlico), organized volunteers, rounded up weekly samples, prepared them for testing, then read the results every week for Swim Guide. We could not do this program without them. Thank you, DaNisha and Rachel, for all your hard work and dedication!
