"Education is not about filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire."--Wm. B. Yeats
“In the pursuit of knowledge and wisdom in Routt County, our educational institutions stand ready to equip us to answer life's most important questions: Who am I? Where am I going? And what must I do? Education has a fundamental claim to connecting our reasoning, creative, and imaginative capacities with the reality of our world and, thanks to the availability of our numerous educational venues, our lives are enriched by finding new or deeper meaning into the human experience -- both as a means of bringing us face-to-face with ourselves and also with what lies beyond ourselves.
As we depend on education to carry us toward the fullness of our humanity, we can be thankful that the educational institutions in Routt County are available to provide an opportunity to help us connect and apply intellect to life experience and add depth and understanding in discovering who we are.”--Dr. Kerry Hart, Alpine Campus Dean
