Faces of Rural Action

Spotlight: Adam Fitch
Submitted by Katy Sulfridge, Rural Action Media VISTA

This week’s Faces of Rural Action takes a closer look at our Environmental Learning Program VISTA, Adam Fitch. Adam has been a VISTA with Rural Action since July 2006, and his term expires in July of this summer. Originally from Columbus Ohio, Adam attended Hocking College, where he received a degree in Horsemanship and Farrier Science.

In addition to his interest in horses, Adam has been involved with various other outdoor pursuits all over the country, such as canoeing and mountain climbing. His love for the outdoors gives him the experience needed to help area students foster wonder, responsibility, and stewardship for our natural world. Adam has been involved with community events such as the Paw Paw Festival, the Hockhocking Festival, and also will be coordinating the youth conference portion of Rural Action’s 9th Annual Landowner’s Conference.

After Adam’s term ends in July, he intends to find a job in the area and spend time with his wife and daughter while eagerly awaiting the arrival of his second child in the fall.
