Meet the Staff: Cory Stopka

February 13, 2013

Welcome to the newest edition of Meet the Staff! This time around the Central Office staff will be writing a little about themselves and we hope you enjoy the posts and find something in common with the staff! Don’t forget to “like” the blogs and write comments!

Educational and Leadership Consultant Cory Stopka, St. Cloud State,  answered the following question: What is something most people don’t know about you?

Most people likely don’t know that I enjoy traveling and adventure in the National Parks. Of the 59 National Parks – which I hope to visit all during my lifetime – I have visited eight, including some multiple times. In those parks I’ve summited three mountains including Hallett Peak (12,713’) in Colorado’s Rocky Mountain National Park, Stony Man Mountain (4,011’) in Virginia’s Shenandoah National Park and Mount LeConte (6,593’) in Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountains National Park. There’s just something about being in nature that brings peace and perspective to you. In addition to the National Parks, I’ve visited four National Monuments, six National Historical Parks and numerous other historical locations or memorials. If you have any desire to join in these adventures with me, as many brothers have, let me know. Maybe we’ll be exploring Mount Rainier and Olympic National Parks this August as we travel to Seattle for Grand Chapter Congress!
