Truckee school district shows video by SNC students

A four-minute video produced by Sierra Nevada College students was highlighted during the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District’s convocation for teachers and faculty this year.

The powerful video was about Yami Gutierrez—a Sierra Nevada College (SNC) student and a graduate of the local non-profit program Adventure Risk Challenge (ARC). It was shown at the beginning of the Tahoe-Truckee school year, so teachers could understand the ARC program better and be able to recommend students to participate in it.

Two talented students— Nick Cahill and Trevor Jackson—majoring in Interdisciplinary Studies in Digital Arts and Entrepreneurship/ Management filmed and produced this video for a service learning project to support ARC.  A youth development organization that integrates wilderness and literacy, ARC was founded by SNC Professor Katie Zanto in 2004.

“The entire school district is reminded about the power of the ARC program through their video. It’s a great example of how a Service Learning project can have a huge impact on a local organization,” Zanto said.
