Steve Fox has been a big help to the club during the last few years. As a high school teacher, geologist and long-time rock hound in the area, he is fountain of wisdom. He also writes for the newsletter and received an award in 2009 for his story in the October 2008 Prospector, Capturing the Wild Dioptase. Article by Steve or about field trips that he has been on or led are in almost every issue the past few years. There is a particularly nice story about Steve and Johnie Pitman’s visit to the local schools in the May 2009 issue.
