A Spotlight on Rural Innovators: Michael Lamond
May 12, 2021 We got to interview rural innovator Michael Lamond from Salida Middle School about the three-part project he did with his students inspired by the book “A Long Walk to Water” by Linda Sue Park. Lamond had his students read the book, do a “Water Walk” carrying 5 gallons of water up Tenderfoot Mountain, and raise money for wells in Sudan, to which they raised over $7 thousand! Lamond did this project in order to give his students the perspective of those who don’t have accessible water nearby in their country.
