Summa Cum Laude

Appalachian State University 



2016-2017 Americorps Service Member Crestone, CO


Mr. Prestrud was called to teach while sitting in his dorm room at Appalachian State while doing psychology homework. Since that fateful day, he has worked toward the goal of being an excellent teacher. He grew up in Apex, NC, considers Boone, NC his second home, and spent the last two years in rural Colorado doing national service work at a homeless shelter, food bank, and a school. Colorado is a beautiful place, but it is good to be back home!
