Describe a student outcome or success that you are most proud of.
Some of my favorite memories over the years have come on our summer week long backpacking expeditions with Big City Mountaineers. I have seen students that have never hiked, camped, backpacked or really even been outside learn that step by step you can hike a 12,000 ft mountain, and then apply that to their school and life experiences.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
An education is never wasted.
