Foothills grad Perri Spreiser describes how she chose to be a park ranger: “I give a lot of credit to my first-grade teacher (Charlotte Ackerman), who noticed that I wasn’t the average kid. Instead of trying to mold me to be like everyone else, she embraced my differences—like how I had a full entomology lab set up in my bedroom. Then, in (Foothills) high school, I took a field studies course with river rafting, rock climbing, hydrology, ecosystems. That was the first time I realized I could do something like this forever. When I realized a park ranger was a real thing, it was the only thing I ever wanted to do and be.”
