Four Lowell Whiteman students volunteer
Four Lowell Whiteman Primary School students spent April participating in the school's pilot program, the Community Service Project. Emily Gold, Sean Kuusinen, Shelby Reed and Alex Gibbs volunteered 30 hours a week at area nonprofit organizations and/or government agencies. Emily worked for Yampatika; Sean worked with the Colorado Division of Wildlife; Shelby worked with Lowell Whiteman Primary School; and Alex paired up with Partners in Routt County. The project concluded with a public presentation about what they learned about each organization's contribution to Steamboat.
Steamboat Springs resident Jane Reynolds completed her bachelor's degree in Human Resources Management by participating in a unique educational alliance between Colorado Northwestern Community College and Franklin University. The bachelor's degree completion program allows students in the U.S. to combine on-campus coursework at their community college with online classes through Franklin to complete their degree.
