Zach’s summers leading ARCC students help prepare him for his starring role on NBC’s “Friday Night Lights” as a high school junior. Zach plays the Dillon Panther’s quarterback, Matt Serason, on this popular prime-time show. Zach earned a degree in Performing Arts and Education from Northwestern University. Each summer he returns to ARCC where he utilizes his extraordinary talent as an outdoor educator!
One of my favorite ARCC memories was trekking up over an Alaskan tundra pass. We were greeted by a herd of caribou and views of glaciated river valleys below. We looked down to see the highlight of our adventure, a snowfield. Our group spent the afternoon glissading through this snowfield, laughing all the while. Traveling off trail for the past six days, it was clear that we had this playground all to ourselves.
