Staff Spotlight: Eli High

Eli High comes to us from Nature's Classroom, a year round outdoor education center. There he met Kacy Lebby, who, as our trip director, knows a thing or two about what we're looking for in our trip leaders. Kacy recommended that Eli apply, which he did, and now he's on board as a member of our trip staff. 

Eli was born in Georgia and moved to the St. Louis area when he was 12. He was an accounting major for the first three years of college before he realized that wasn't what he wanted to do with his life. He changed his major and has spent the last few years educating kids in outdoor settings. He's worked at Nature's Classroom for the past two years and we're looking forward to all that he'll bring to North Star.
