SALINA, Kan. (AP) A park ranger who was shot to death at Mount Rainier is being remembered by her former professors in Kansas as a dedicated and passionate student.
Margaret Anderson died Sunday after being shot while on duty at the national park in Washington. The suspected shooter was later found dead in the park.
Anderson earned a bachelor’s degree in fisheries and wildlife management from Kansas State University and later received a master’s in biology from Fort Hays State University.
Don Kaufman, a Kansas State ecology professor, was Anderson’s undergraduate adviser. He told The Salina Journal that Anderson was a motivated, good student who was a delight to have in class.
And Karen Hickman, who taught Anderson at Fort Hays, says Anderson was devoted to protecting natural resources.
