PROTECTING OUR STATE'S WATER QUALITY
Amy Camp is doing her part to protect Texas water as an environmental investigator with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. In this position, Camp works to ensure wastewater and other industrial facilities adhere to state regulations, ultimately protecting the health and safety of the environment and citizens of Texas.
At SFA, we believe students benefit greatly from hands-on learning in and out of the classroom. Transformative experiences are at the core of our academic philosophy.
