MAGS honored as a 2006 recipient of the "Petro" award

11.18.2006: Tennessee Earth Science Teachers (TEST) recognizes those individuals who have made significant contributions to the teaching of earth science in Tennessee through the Ptero Award. Ptero is the nickname for Tennessee's Official State Fossil, Pterotrigonia (Scabrotrigonia) thoracica (link), designated by act of legislature in 1997. This fossil represents the vast geologic and paleontological riches across Tennessee and commemorates their utility as an educational resource. Recipients receive a plaque with an authentic fossil "Ptero" mounted on the plaque. MAGS was presented with this special award in Nashville on November 18. Sharing the award this year are the Memphis Archaeological and Geological Society, the Middle Tennessee Gem and Mineral Society and the Knoxville Gem and Mineral Society.
