Letter: Thanks to Dickinson director for commitment to water education
The Southwest Water Authority Board of Directors, management and staff wish to thank Bill Sharff for his years of dedicated service for his dynamic contributions to water education in North Dakota.
Sharff is retiring from his position at the North Dakota State Water Commission as director of North Dakota’s Water Education for Teachers (Project WET), which facilitates and promotes awareness, knowledge, exploration and stewardship of North Dakota’s water resources.
Sharff has provided steadfast leadership to the SWC, serving as director of project WET since 1990 and being involved with the Coalition for Conservation and Environmental Education since 1995.
He was instrumental in the development of SWA’s “Make a Splash” Water Festival and helped coordinate the efforts over the last 12 years.
Sharff has developed, facilitated and conducted hundreds of instructional courses, workshops, teacher programs, youth water festivals and other youth and special community family events — all to increase the knowledge of the youth and citizens of southwest North Dakota in our most precious resource — water.
The Board of Directors, management and staff of SWA express their most grateful appreciation to Sharff on behalf of the residents of southwest North Dakota for his loyalty, enthusiasm and passion for water education.
They wish Sharff and his family the best of health and happiness in all endeavors and remain humbly grateful for his many years of service.
The Southwest Water Authority takes the greatest pride in its mission of providing quality water for southwest North Dakota.
Mary Massad, Dickinson
