  Everest 2006 Team No Limits: Team No Limits gains interest from students across the country


 

Team No Limits member, Matt Tredway, has inspired and caught the attention of schools across the country. Tredway, a sixth grade Math and Science teacher from Steamboat Springs is teaching students to live their dreams. To our knowledge, Matt Tredway is the first K -12 teacher from the USA to make the lofty attempt of climbing Mount Everest. Tredway, sponsored by Ford Direct, is endorsed by the American Education Association and has gained a lot of interest from students and teachers everywhere.

In an interview with Tredway prior to his departure, he stated, "I feel my students have mountains to climb every day and I would like to teach them to face these challenges." Matt Tredway and his team are inspirational and their pursuit illustrates that their is no limit to what the human spirit can achieve.

Today, fourth graders from Rockwell Elementary School followed the team's progress on the Everest News web site. Layne Rigsby, the granddaughter of team member, Dr. Larry Rigsby, enjoyed sharing the adventure with fellow students as well as faculty. Rockwell Elementary sends their very best to the Expedition members and will continue to follow this story as it progresses.
