What inspired you to join the CRMS Board of Trustees? I believe in nontraditional education that approaches students with challenges and opportunities. I would love for more teenagers to have high school careers like those that CRMS students have, and joining CRMS’s Board of Trustees is my way of volunteering to help those teenagers find and access the experience.
What do you value most about CRMS? I value CRMS’s history of being a leader in getting students into the outdoors. It really utilizes its location in a phenomenal way.
What are you most excited about while serving as a Trustee? I am enthusiastic about working with the Active Curriculum team, the Safety Committee, and faculty/staff who lead trips and expeditions. CRMS has a great history of providing programming in the outdoors and I hope to be a part in helping that legacy continue for years to come. I also know that serving on the CRMS Board of Trustees is a wonderful chance for me to learn, and I can’t wait to work with talented and experienced trustees, staff members, and alumni.
