Out On the Trail: 50 Years of Volunteerism

By Bob Fuller, 2017 President's Volunteer Service Award recipient

I’ve spent some of the best days of my life out on a hiking trail, clearing brush, field checking maps and leading crews that rehabilitate trails and build new ones.  You might see me carrying a clipboard and counting deer droppings, cutting brush with loppers or clearing blown down trees with a chain saw. Or perhaps you might find me building a bridge, swinging a sledge hammer or moving big rocks to build stepping stones or stairs.  It’s not a high-paying job; it’s not even a paying job, actually. Money isn’t the point. I volunteer because it’s infinitely rewarding.

For students, the college experience is a pivotal time of growth. Not only are these individuals learning new concepts and theories through their studies, many are also taking that first initial jump from childhood to adulthood as they navigate life with an increased sense of independence. Whether these students live on campus or commute from home, their experience at college shapes their first impression of life beyond the books.
