News from “Kid for the Wild Scholarship/MUSE” 2015
This year, Chloe Loeffelholz, was awarded the Kid for the Wild Scholarship. She is from Bozeman, MT and will participate in the Traveling School. Her high school semester will take place in in Botswana, Namibia, South Africa and Zambia.
From the “Traveling School” website:
In our South-West Africa semester, students travel through South Africa, Namibia and Botswana. This trip explores southern Africa from the tip of Cape Horn, to the ghostly Skeleton Coast in Namibia, to the massive elephant herds in Botswana’s Okavango Delta. We stay with local families outside of Cape Town, hike Table Mountain, and meet with freedom fighters that helped to bring an end to Apartheid in South Africa. We rock climb, listen to African drums in ancient villages, help with service projects and experience a river trip on the gentle Orange River between Namibia and South Africa.
Not only are her awards and achievements impressive, her outlook on life makes her a perfect “Kid for the Wild”. Chloe is a history nut, Violinist, focusing on women and leadership; she has found healing in her life through many outdoor experiences.
Chloe told us that this choice to study abroad is difficult because not many scholarships are available for her age group that aren’t specifically for college. The Kid for the Wild Scholarship is unique in its emphasis on the environment, music and the lives of teenagers.
Congratulations, Chloe! Thanks for being a “Kid for the Wild”.
