Hey Lincoln People!

There was this one time when I was on a boat with some friends, and this guy was like, "Come to the back of the boat..."

I think my favorite teacher throughout high school was this dude named Fred Rupp. We of course had to call him Mr. Rupp, but outside the classroom we could call him Fred. He was just a really cool guy; he made learning about biology fun. We had to dissect cats as part of the class, and he walked us through it step by step. He had kind of a short temper though, if you didn't understand something and he thought you should be able to at the stage you were at, he tended to get a bit frustrated.
During the summer he ran a program called Les Voyageurs, which was a month long canoe trip up into Canada. I was fortunate enough to be able to go, and it was a blast. Some of the best memories I have are from that trip.
