We greeted eight members of Wilderness Team #1 who returned to RDU airport Tuesday afternoon (the “missing” went on to other destinations). Everyone looked great and we can’t wait to hear the stories and see more photos. Members of Team #1 were Lydia Allen, Ann Margaret Dietrich, Thomas Harris, John Mitchell, Kaitlyn Oppenheim, Will 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 will dive straight into summer school, study abroad and work. Ann Margaret, Alan and Brian 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.

CCL Has Enduring Impact through the Caldwell Fellows
Whether it’s the executive who’s responsible for making sure your custom-engraved iPod gets to you in just three days or the critical care pediatrician working to save a child’s life, there is little question that Caldwell Fellows alumni are making an impact — in their workplaces, in their communities and around the world.
The Center for Creative Leadership has been an integral part of the Caldwell Fellows program and its impact since the beginning, a relationship that spans 40 years.
On January 2-4 we had 22 students at the Center for Creative Leadership for our annual capstone leadership training. Concurrently, we had a group of alumni in training as well (a one time event in cekebration of our 40th anniversary.)
The picture above shows Caldwell Fellow alumnus John Higdon (class of 83) and his daughter Summer, Caldwell class of 2014. They are pictured with Bill Sternbergh who has trained every class of Fellows at CCL for 40 years!
