“I have arrived. I am home. My destination is in each step." --Thich Nhat Hanh
Having found lecture-based education to be less effective than experiential education, Connor enrolled in a semester course with Colorado Outward Bound School. This step launched him into the outdoor education and recreation world, and he pursued it as both a student and a teacher for the following couple of years. After enrolling at Western State Colorado University, he heard the name “Adaptive Sports Center” mentioned with some reverence and enthusiasm. After that, it was simply a matter of time before he was drawn to the mountains and people of Crested Butte’s Adaptive Sports Center.
