The Redefining Rural Podcast

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. To learn more, listen to the entire episode here:
