From Cecil Goodman, Adventure Education Faculty Member
Adventure education seniors have completed another batch of amazing/inspiring/transformational senior projects – including Savannah Sandoe’s project working with the outdoor club at Phoenix Union High School, which culminated in a 3-day fully Prescott College student-led backpacking trip that sought to foster student leadership and community. There were rave reviews from the high school students and the teacher.
Here’s what the teacher had to say: “I wanted to take a moment and tell you that Savannah truly came through on her project. Here’s a list of the things that were completed excellently: her communication with me throughout the entire process; her presentation to the students at school before the trip; her going back out to the trail to confirm water sources; the menu she planned; the extra gear she obtained- everything. However, where she excelled the most was in her leadership of the trip. Her positive energy and vibe could be felt during the entire trip. She led and served endlessly throughout. I was so impressed with her. This trip was every bit as outstanding as any trip that I’ve been on with Prescott College, and it was executed by two students.”
