UPDATE FROM THE PRESIDENT'S OFFICE
Dr. Dene Thomas 

As we begin our march into the holiday season, I reflect on what I have to be thankful for. Great family and good friends are always near the top of the list, but I am also thankful to live in a place like Durango and work at an institution like Fort Lewis College...

 

Alumnus climbs into a journalism career

Chris Parker is still climbing. The only difference is now he gets paid for it.

As a reporter, writer, columnist, and online editor at the venerable sport-climbing magazine Rock & Ice, Parker (English, '11) is busy. "As editor, there are two sections of the magazine that I have to make happen every issue," he says. "I conduct interviews with well-known climbers, and the other can be anything from a destination piece or a journal from a road trip-type piece. And online, that's kind of my baby. I am in charge of much of the content on the site."



FLC Alumna turns her camera on Afghan photographers in upcoming film.

"Film is so powerful a tool," says filmmaker Alexandria Bombach, "because storytelling is so human and can make a big difference in people's lives."

Bombach (Business Administration, '08) has proven that theory herself. After her first film, a travelogue of her journey in an Airstream trailer to meet people living with few possessions, she was surprised to find she had touched viewers.
 

"After 23 Feet was released, people would talk to me and email me, pouring their hearts out about their own experiences," says Bombach. "It's those kind of letters from people and those one-on-one conversations that I think about when I need inspiration."
