ECHO Guide Receives Fullbright Fellowship
Kelly Winton, who has been guiding for ECHO since 1983 and now teaches high school in Salmon, Idaho, has received a fellowship from the Japanese Fullbright Memorial Fund for Teachers. Kelly is one of 200 teachers (our of more than 2500 applicants) chosen to spend three weeks of intensive study of Japanese culture and education, and then to share her new knowledge with her community.
Jim Toney, Kelly's husband and also long-time ECHO guide, will join Kelly after her stint. The two of them; will travel by train through China, Mongolia, Russia and Europe, making a round-the world trip on their way back to Salmon.
We expect them to share great stories of their adventure while guiding for us on the Middle Fork this summer.
