Frank has joined Mt Shasta’s Planning Department on a one-year CivicSpark Fellowship to assist with the city’s Water Resource Element project. He graduated in 2017 from Pomona College in Claremont, CA with a degree in Environmental Analysis. Although originally from Nashville, TN, Frank is a westerner at heart, with a keen interest in California water policy, climate change adaptation, and urban planning. He is excited to put all those passions to good use this year in Mt Shasta. In his free time, he enjoys hiking, rock climbing, and painting.
Derek is a recent graduate of the University of California, Santa Barbara with degrees in Hydrology and Environmental Studies, as well as a minor in Chemistry. He was born and raised in the suburbs of Los Angeles and have been a big-city dweller my whole life. In his free time, Derek likes to be in the outdoors. Specifically, he like to hike, fish, camp, sight see, and explore. Above all else, he is very excited to call the City of Mt. Shasta home for the next year, and can’t wait to see what comes next!
