Farewell, Brad
You will be missed!
We are sad to announce that our Marketing Manager, Brad Surratt, has left Outdoor Lab Foundation to pursue a new path.  Although we are extremely sad to see him go, we are so proud of all that he has accomplished here in the last 3 years and wish him all the luck in his next endeavors. 

Brad attended Mt. Evans as both a 6th grade student and High School Leader, where he focused on teaching the kids Forestry and Outdoor Photography.  In 2011, he began working for Outdoor Lab Foundation as an Intern.  Six short months later, he became a full-time staff member. While working here, Brad has helped this organization grow and has been an integral part of its success.  

Lucky for us, we will be able to track him on his journey.  Brad will be spending 45 days in South Africa and Dubai, keeping a blog on his adventures. If you are interested in reading up on all the fun he is having, you can find the blog here!

Good-bye Brad and we wish you the best!
