On September 14th, returning and new Puksta Scholars gathered for our Fall retreat at NCAR. It was a great pleasure to welcome our 3 new scholars and set the tone for the year. We had a great time on the blind hike and telling our public narratives. We were fortunate to be joined by NiChel Mulstay, the Director of Development and Community Outreach at the Puksta Foundation who helped students learn about new networking tools. Manuela Sifuentes helped students learn about the many possible organizations, events, and agencies they could connect with.
