Francis P. Koster, Ed.D.
My life’s mission has emerged over time, shaped by some unique experiences. While serving in the Peace Corps in Africa, in a small village of grass-roofed huts, a 4-year-old neighbor girl who had shyly welcomed me a few days before died in my arms. I later learned that she had contracted a disease as a result of contaminated water. Although the village mourned, no one appeared surprised. But I was grief-stricken and angry. The fact that this death by pollution was accepted as almost normal upset me deeply.Learn More About Fran Koster
