Gary with Dripping Springs StudentsGary Guller & Dennis Borel meet Dripping Springs Students


Over 80 students from Dripping Springs Middle and High Schools attended a presentation by expedition leader Gary Guller, an international mountaineer and Austinite with one arm, and Dennis Borel, Executive Director of the Coalition of Texans with Disabilities and Project Director of Team Everest '03. These students, exemplifying the finest leaders in the area, have made it their class project to be involved in TE '03, and plan to show their support of Teacher Chris Godwin with Garythe expedition by promoting TE '03 to their respective student organizations. TE '03 has captured the imagination, not only of Dripping Springs students, but all of Central Texas and the USA. Says Guller:

We are pleased that Dripping Springs students share in the vision of promoting the capabilities of people with disabilities. It was an absolute pleasure talking with them about Team Everest '03 and promoting this message. We are honored and looking forward to communicating with the students from the mountain. We thank you for your support!
