Thanks @tuck_themagic_brandon for the postcard! You've got us daydreaming of a mountain top escape.
What are you all reading this summer! Show and tell us all about it. #CFs22reading
Alisa Andrews (CFs '23) used her summer 2022 experiential learning stipend to participate in the @thomasjeffersonscholars senior trip to the Big Island of Hawaii to learn about sustainable agriculture systems. Way to #thinkbig @alisaandrewss
We hope you’ll join us in saying ‘welcome’ to the newest member our staff, Chester Brewer! Chester will serve as the Caldwell Fellows program's Associate Director, having previously served as an Assistant Director for NC State’s University Honors and Scholars Program over the past ten years. Among his many roles in that office, Chester facilitated the outdoor exploration trip series and had the privilege of introducing students to the magic of travel in the outdoors in North Carolina, the Western US, Central America and the Caribbean. He graduated with a master's degree in outdoor education in 2011 after a two-year volunteer experience with Americorps. Since then, Chester has been examining the affective impact of time spent outdoors, the conceptual underpinnings and philosophy of space and place, and helped students cultivate skills of observation and reflection. Currently, when not at work, Chester is tending to his garden, enjoying time with family, takes long walks around his neighborhood, and is always reading as he pursues a doctoral degree in educational leadership. Welcome, Chester!
