Gould Senior Skye ’15 Named to Warm Winters’ Youth Advisory Board
Bethel, Maine (December 15, 2014)–Bethel, Maine native and Gould Academy senior Skye ’15 has recently earned a seat on Warm Winters’ Youth Advisory Board and the title as the manager of their Lost and Found donation program at Sunday River Resort in Newry, Maine. She will also help to manage Warm Winters’ social media.
In a recent post on Facebook by Warm Winters, the group shared that, “Skye has spent the past 4 years volunteering in a program that teaches local elementary school kids to snowboard. She says “I think it is important for young adults to become active members of social change within their communities. Bringing Warm Winters to my local ski resort will have a direct impact on many people’s lives this winter in Maine.” Skye has been a snowboarder for the past 8 years and enjoys skiing the back country, as well as hitting jumps and rails in the park. Sunday River is her home mountain, and she enjoys the beautiful mountains there. In the summertime, she can be found hiking, camping or traveling.”
In addition to working as a Rugrats instructor in the winter (alluded to by Warm Winters above), helping teach local elementary school kids how to snowboard, Skye is also a member of REACHOUT–Gould Academy’s Community Service Club, Gould Girls Groups, and a member of Gould Goes Green–a group dedicated to helping Gould become a model of environmental sustainability.
Congratulations to Skye!
