Posters of Professors Tim Herbert  and Jack Mustard – “Earth Warriors” created by  Angel Mojarro (Sc.B. 2011) Angel was inspired by “theridiculously awesome pictures from the 2008 Alumni Magazine (article) that called Tim "The Earth Warrior". Then I thoughtit would be awesome to have one for each professor, hence the Jack Mustard poster.” Angel would like to create a poster for each faculty member, so that we can have a gallery of “Earth Warriors”. Coincidentally, both Tim and Jack were honored as fellows of the AAAS (link) and were referred to by a member of the Rhode Island State Legislature as “Our Rhode Island Science All STAHS”
