I CAME TO BOSS BECAUSE...

I wanted to learn how to live in harmony with the earth and use the natural resources she provides us all, thereby not having to depend entirely on modern gear for my survival.

I TEACH AT BOSS BECAUSE...

I believe BOSS programs help foster the virtue of practical wisdom, which allows other virtues, such as honesty, kindness, and courage to be displayed at the right time and in the right way. I trust that I'm having a positive influence on the world by being a part of BOSS and what it awards students and staff alike.
