Staff Spotlight - Christopher Rodriguez

Christopher Rodriguez joins us for his second summer. A trip leader in 2013, he'll serve as the director of our trip program this summer. Christopher is originally from Fort Worth, Texas but has lived in Nacogdoches for 7 of the last nine years. He just graduated From Stephen F Austin University and he wants everyone to know that their mascot is the Lumberjack. At SFAU he was a trips logistics manager of the Outdoor Pursuits program. In that role he oversaw trip leaders, was in charge of logistics for the program and also led trips. 

He's a big sports fan but unfortunately he didn't get to see SFAU's big March Madness win over VCU because he was visiting his niece who wanted to watch Frozen. He's also a big baseball fan, cheering on the Texas Rangers and is always up for checking out a new ballpark.
