OACGC is excited to announce the addition of Kim Albers to our Board to Directors!
Kim is an English Learner (EL) teacher for Newport Schools. She has lived abroad in New Zealand and Chile and was a ski instructor at Lake Tahoe, CA for five years – she is happiest when on an adventure in nature! With a passion for the outdoors and education, it was only a matter of time before Kim began collaborating with Outdoor Adventure Clubs.
She met Denny (Founder/Executive Director) randomly while working for Cincinnati Parks’ Explore Nature! program many years ago. They were reconnected when Newport HS became involved with OAC. Kim is inspired by how the program has provided so many adventures and activities for students. She is most impressed with the freedom and self-reliance that is placed on the students as they learn about themselves and their capabilities. One of her favorite memories was seeing a few students in particular work together to set up a tent for the first time on our end of the year campout in May of 2015.
Kim is looking forward to serving on the OACGC board so that she can contribute to the mission of Outdoor Adventure Clubs. “I whole heartedly believe in the mission of OAC and want to help the program grow and continue to succeed”, she says.
Welcome to the Board, Kim! We’re so happy to have you.
