The MVSD has selected Wyatt Southworth to serve as the newly established Construction/Design and Outdoor Recreation teacher.
Using the feedback generated through the MVSD’s Budget Development Process and Dream Big Event emphasizing the need to expand “Career and Technical Education” pathways and related coursework, Wyatt will be engaging students in hands-on, community-based construction projects that prepare students to seek meaningful employment and/or continue their post-secondary education in the design and construction trades following graduation.
In addition, Wyatt’s work for Outward Bound as a mountaineering instructor will enable the district to provide LBHS and ILC students with access to outdoor recreational and/or wilderness first responder coursework, exposing interested students to the many careers associated with recreation and tourism.
It should also be noted that Wyatt’s diverse background and work-related experience in the areas of design, construction, and outdoor education will allow the MVSD to launch an Automotive Tech program facilitated by MVSD Instructor, Trent Whatley as early as next fall.
Wyatt moved to the Methow Valley in 2005 to work for Outward Bound as a mountaineering instructor. With ten years in residential and commercial construction Wyatt states, “I’m looking forward to working with students and the community to create lasting and impactful projects that give students hands-on experience designing and building.”
When Wyatt isn’t working, he enjoys spending time with his family, camping on the weekends, skiing and mountain biking. He is currently a volunteer EMT for Aero Methow and serves as the Vice Chair of the Methow Watershed Foundation.
