Ingalls named associate director of CReSIS

The Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets has appointed a new associate director for administration, Stephen Ingalls, to better organize the center and to help spread its message about climate change.

"I would like to be able to tell people how climate change might affect their futures. It is something very important," said Ingalls about the mission of the center.

Some goals Ingalls hopes to accomplish include organizing the staff, sharing the research of the center with the public, increasing diversity and educating students of all ages about science, technology, engineering and mathematics.  "I want kids to grow up thinking it's cool to be a scientist, just like they might think it's cool to be a professional basketball player," said Ingalls.

The 2006 Kansas Relays were the 79th edition, drawing more than 620 teams and 5,300 athletes from high schools, colleges and the national circuit. A crowd of 26,211, the second-largest in meet history, attended the final day.
