Henry Fisher, 21, is born, raised, and educated in Sewanee, Tennessee! Growing up on the college campus that he eventually enrolled in, Henry has very strong ties to the close-knit community and beautiful outdoor environment that is Sewanee. For high school, Henry traded out the Cumberland Plateau for the Blue Ridge Mountains at the Asheville School in North Carolina. His childhood instilled a desire to both preserve the outdoors and to share it with others. When he has free time, Henry loves to running and exploring outside. He furthered his passions during his gap year between high school and college, where he completed a one month NOLS course in the Wind River Range, followed by a semester long Where There Be Dragons course in Peru and Bolivia. If these experiences weren’t enough to make Henry passionate about outdoor adventures, he also is a 2-time Moondance alum! Henry participated on the Mountains to Sea and Pacific Northwest trips and absolutely loved them! This summer, he is most excited to be back in the outdoors sharing that experience with teenagers. Welcome to Sardinia and Slovenia, Henry!
Elizabeth Oakes, 22, hails from Spartanburg, South Carolina and is a recent graduate of Sewanee: The University of the South, where she studied Natural Resources. Elizabeth is a 2015 alum of our Kilimanjaro program, which proved to be life changing for her! Elizabeth spent her childhood attending Camp Wayfarer and credits her time there with instilling her love for the outdoors. Prior to Sewanee, Elizabeth graduated from Spartanburg Day School where she was heavily involved on campus and a captain of the women’s varsity soccer team. At Sewanee, she rarely had any down time, but she likes it that way! On campus, Elizabeth was a Well-Directed Curiosity Leader (after school tutor), a trip leader for pre-orientation, and a Sewanee Outing Program leader! After providing such a wonderful experience for the students on her trips on Colorado Trail in 2017 and in Northern Lights in 2018, we can’t wait to see Elizabeth return for a third summer filled with adventure and excitement! To Sardinia and Slovenia, she goes!
