SCA 2006, Yellowstone National Park
A good percentage of SCA interns are seeking job experience, but John already had a career’s worth by the time he applied to SCA. He’d just retired as an executive at WGBH-TV, one of the nation’s top public television stations, and was looking for new pursuits when he heard Yellowstone was looking for a “wolf ambassador.” John got the gig and has been a seasonal ranger at Yellowstone ever since. Still appreciative of his SCA beginnings, he regularly writes or visits, and when SCA held its board meeting in nearby Jackson, WY, John treated numerous SCA directors and staff to an unforgettable “behind the scenes” tour of Yellowstone. The highlight, of course, was a private wolf watch. The Huffington Post has more on John in this profile.
