Students in Carissa Wilcox’s Comm-356 class finished final projects for the Spring 2017 semester. Students in this Small Groups course were challenged to make a difference in the community.
One of the groups, calling themselves Team Trail Mix (Maintaining Idaho X-Country) finished their final project by deciding to lead by example. They spent a day cleaning trails at Table Rock and reminding users of proper trail etiquette.
Congratulations to Johnny Whitmore, Anna Gallegos, Katie Bartlett, Maddy Peterson, and Amanda Fiksdal on a project well done!
“Hiking Table Rock was absolutely enthralling. The imminent threat of hypothermia and mountain lions lurking around every bend turned our community service mission into an adrenaline filled excursion that hinged between life and death. Working together to clean the trails was much more dangerous than we initially imagined. Thankful to the pepper spray in Katie’s backpack, we forged on as our civic duty to beautify our surroundings.”
