Roan Scholars Gallery
The freshman class of the Roan Scholars Leadership Program
participated in their first Roan adventure during a ten-day outdoor

Mollie, Chelsea, Lucas, Matt, and Erika learned a multitude of new
skills, including kayaking, caving, outdoor survival, hiking, scuba

kayaking destination for several years due to its remote
