Today I was walking up the stairs to Zehler to stop in and see the lovely Bethany Renner, and as I was walking up the stairs, I was having flashbacks on the incredible summer that I spent working for the Rivers Institute. I was part of an incredible summer team that successfully completed many tasks including planning the steward orientation, developing the River Leadership Curriculum, and running summer programs for hundreds of people from preschoolers to adults. We all had our own specific tasks, but we really worked as a team. We had some great bonding moments, a lot of learning experiences, and developed new skills. I could write hundreds of blogs about my summer, but I will just try to hit the highlights.
