A junior at Colorado Rocky Mountain School, Evelyn is a committed activist for human rights. Originally from South Dakota, Evelyn will be returning home to create a documentary about the women of the Lakota Reservation. Through her camera lens she will capture the stories and challenges surrounding the women of these ancient traditions living in the modern age.
Lily is a senior at Colorado Rocky Mountain School. A Carbondale local and accomplished rider, Lily volunteers with Smiling Goat Ranch, utilizing her horse skills in a therapeutic riding program with children on the autism spectrum. Building on these experiences, Lily will travel to Portugal to study under a renowned classical dressage rider and autistic therapy expert. She is looking forward to bringing her training back to the valley and continuing to work with horses in benefiting the autistic community.
A whirling dervish of energy, Whitton is a junior at Colorado Rocky Mountain School. He has a sharp awareness of the importance of public lands in our current political climate. An inspired photographer, he will branch into film, documenting the beauty and importance of Colorado's public lands, bringing attention to the necessity of preserving these special places. His film will give voice to the places that cannot speak for themselves, the places where we play, where we learn, explore and expand.
