We recently posted an interview with Lowell Whiteman School admission director, Derek Svennungsen, over on the Western Boarding Schools Association blog (Lowell Whiteman School: Local Outdoor Adventure and Global Travel).
Regular readers might remember our announcement that we’re doing some production work with WBSA as they get their blog up and running.
Derek shared a few minutes with us for a Skype interview exploring Lowell Whiteman and the opportunities that grow directly from being in Steamboat Springs, CO.
Naturally, the mountians, outdoor recreation, snow, and winter sports figure prominently at Lowell Whiteman. Each April, though, the entire school turns its attention to the world beyond Steamboat.
Students and faculty (everyone) pack-up and head out all over the globe in small groups to engage and immerse themselves in places, cultures, and languages different from their own; the focused local engagement practiced in Steamboat gains experience and perspective.
