2013 Valedictorian Nominees

The valedictorian nominees for the Business Department are Ben Cary, Stine Lunde, and Luca Ricou. Stine

“I feel privileged to be nominated for Valedictorian. Being chosen from a group of so many good students as one of the candidates to represent the Class of 2013, is truly an honor. My four years at Sierra Nevada College has been amazing, and if I were to be chosen to speak at the Commencement Ceremony it would be a perfect ending to this journey.” – Stine Lunde

Spring Break

This past week, we met up with recent grad Andrew Gauthier. Andrew pulled an all-nighter to meet us in Paris over spring break. Andrew is currently getting his MBA in Hospitality Management at Glion in Switzerland. He is working on his dissertation with Killington Ski Resort. Andrew will graduate in June and hopes to return to the States to work at a ski resort on the west coast.

We had a weekend packed with friends, sights, and food.
