Matthew W. Beard
On Friday, May 11, 2007, Glenn Patton presented Ben Mason a check for $3,500 donated by family and friends to continue Matthew Beard’s research. In attendance was Matthew’s mother Connie Beard, Family, Friends and Co-workers.
Ben Mason gave a presentation about Matthew Beard’s discovery and how he was going to carry on the research. Matthew discovered certain corals are sensitive to light and that their favor certain colors. Discoveries like these could effect many issues related to coral restoration.
