MELISSA THOMAS-YARDE - Melissa, a Caribbean native and a computer programmer, has become an expert on the Everglades preservation in only a matter of weeks. “When I began this journey, I did not expect this capstone project to change me the way it did,” Melissa asserts, and she has become an ardent voice calling for “a commitment that demands global attention to the Everglades — any weak effort will be lost among the tides and seas of growing world problems; we need a worldwide thrust to teach people to appreciate, value and preserve the Everglades for all mankind.”
