Last month we welcomed back both teams of Wilderness adventurers! Team 2 consisted of Kimani Hall, Amanda Marshall, Hillary Spangler, Cam White, Jessica Neville, Andelica Gonzales, DT Oliver, Jenna Pye, and three leaders including Jerry Barker, Brian Ingram and Paul Mobley. Wilderness Team #1 members (pictured except for those who went on to other destinations) were Lydia Allen, Ann Margaret Dietrich, Thomas Harris, John Mitchell, Kaitlyn Oppenheim, William Pfitzner, Julia Rao, Rajan Singh, Brian Schuster, Alan Sheridan, and team leaders, Ethan Lineberger and Robert Horner. All reported an amazing experience in the Sierra Nevadas and something they will long remember. They tackled many days of hiking, climbing, cooking, eating and sleeping out of doors in high altitudes and below freezing temps at night. Team members transitioned straight into summer school, study abroad and work. Ann Margaret, Alan and Brian from Team 1 were Class of 2013 graduates and all are moving or have already moved out of state to start careers in Tennessee, California and Michigan respectively. Team 2 graduates Hillary Spangler, Cam White and Jessica Neville are starting advanced degrees and service work.

Congratulations to the Caldwell Fellows class of 2013. We will recognize the seniors at a luncheon at the NC State Arboretum on Friday May 10. Immediately after graduation many of the seniors will embark on one of two Wilderness trips this year to the Sierra Nevada mountains and/or help facilitate the SATELLITE Camp right here on NC State campus. The annual camp introduces fifty high school students from around NC to majors and career options in Science and Technology.
