All three of the women are UHV students and pre-service teachers. Dodds is pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies in early childhood to sixth-grade education, and Leist and Cantu are earning their BSIS degrees in fourth-grade to eighth-grade education. The event was attended by 85 educators and students, and offered 44 different presentations by UHV pre-service teachers, who will graduate in 2019.
