Rodger was never discouraged by a problem, if an issue were to arise he would think of it less as an issue and more as an opportunity to learn. Rodger was not only invested in the rehabilitation of the Puritan Tiger Beetle but he was invested in everyone involved with the project; working with students to develop projects that would advance their careers, incorporating opinions of those who’ve studied PTB in the past, and scheduling time with volunteers who just wanted some extra lab experience. It was never hard to get in touch with Rodger, he was always available by phone or email to answer any question, big or small, related or unrelated to the project. It was a pleasure to work with and learn from Rodger Gwiazdowski.
