Hi Mr. Rutherford. I was in your 7th (?) grade science class at Bancroft Junior High School, I think it was 1989. I remember dissecting a cow's eye; you brought in this huge box of eyes one day and we peeled back the layers. You were very excited that day! Remember the Adventure & Ecology Club? You took us rock climbing. Your enthusiasm for everything you did in the name of science and explorations remains unparalleled! Fondly, Tina Ying
