University of Mississippi Field Station

Kids learn ecological lessons at summer camp

Addy Shiroma, 38, learned a lesson about water while working as a teacher in Oknawa, Japan.

“It’s an island, and the reserves are limited there,” she said. “If the reserves get low enough, the whole island rations water.”

Shiroma, who graduated from the University of Mississippi in 1997 with a degree in geology, taught at Kinser Elementary in Japan, a Department of Defense military school, before returning to Oxford this year to become a technology coordinator for the Oxford School District.

This summer, she’s working as an instructor at the University of Mississippi Field Station Ecology Day Camp, which is where The Dart landed. (June 30, 2014, Page 1)
