NOLS Announces New Hires

July 11, 2002

The National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) announces the arrival of two new employees who have filled top management positions at the school. Deborah Johnson has stepped in as Operations Director, overseeing NOLS' five locations in the United States as well as in Canada, Chile, Mexico, , Australia and India. Dave Glenn, from Lander, Wyo., is the new NOLS Rocky Mountain Director in charge of the school's programs and facilities based out of Lander.

Both employees bring to the school a strong background working in education in the profit and nonprofit sectors.

Johnson, who has lived in the Boston, Mass., area for several years, comes to NOLS most recently from an internet company specializing in marketing international student travel. With a master's in business administration from the College of William and Mary, she has also served as Executive Vice President for a domestic student travel corporation, as well as Vice President for EF Educational Tours, the world’s largest educational travel institute. Her expertise in managing both international and domestic educational programs, combined with a background in operations, human resources and marketing, will be essential as she works with NOLS staff and students around the world.

Dave Glenn returns to NOLS after two years working at the Brunton Co. For more than eight years, Glenn served the school in numerous capacities, including as an instructor, admission officer and alumni relations manager. Prior to his career at NOLS, Glenn was the University of Utah's outdoor recreation program director. In his new role, he will oversee the 1,100 students and 90 total field courses that are based out of NOLS' Rocky Mountain facility each year. In addition, Glenn will manage the facilities' 52 in-town support staff, who work with everything from route planning to issuing equipment and rations, and the more than 250 instructors who come each year to teach the NOLS curriculum in leadership and outdoor skills. "I'm excited to be taking on the challenge of NOLS Rocky Mountain branch director," says Glenn. "Right here in Lander our staff are some of the highest qualified, most experienced outdoor professionals in the world…something we all should be proud of."
