Top Kayaking Instructor Making Waves at the CollegeOften times, the best way to learn is by taking a hands-on approach. That’s definitely the philosophy of Ashley Brown, an adjunct instructor in the Department of Health and Human Performance.

Brown teaches coastal kayaking courses, and she’s among the best qualified individuals in the world to do that. She holds the top certification in the U.S. for kayak instructors, and late last year, she received the American Canoeing Association’s Excellence in Instruction Award. That’s an honor given to just one individual in North America each year.

For much of the past decade, Brown has been a pivotal figure in her department. Department chair Wes Dudgeon offers praise, saying that she has almost singlehandedly built the kayaking program at the College. In 2013, there weren’t any students taking such courses, but since then over 60 students each year enroll in Brown’s classes.
