Flagstaff High School Class of `18 Student Faith Lee Wins Naked Mobile’s #Wanderlove Scholarship Challenge

(FLAGSTAFF, ARIZ.) May 2018 – Faith Lee is excited to graduate this week from Flagstaff High School and looks forward to beginning her studies in nursing this fall at Coconino Community College, thanks in part to being named the winner of the <em>#Wanderlove Scholarship Challenge</em>, presented by Naked Mobile. Students who chose to vie for the $1,500 scholarship were challenged to answer questions about what they would do if they could go on a three-day Wanderlove adventure. <a href="https://nakedmobile.com/wanderlove/"><em><u>#<strong>Wanderlove</strong></u></em></a> is Naked Mobile’s original branded content series that showcases life on <em>The SuperNetwork</em>. Short form video episodes of off-the-beaten path adventures—hosted by spunky NAU alum Samantha Krechel (a local Flag resident) and the witty Dapper Dre, a local Flagstaff DJ, can be viewed at <a href="https://nakedmobile.com/wanderlove/"><u>Nakedmobile.com/Wanderlove</u></a>. The series is also broadcast via Naked Mobile’s Facebook, Instagram and YouTube channel. Faith’s heartfelt family-focused responses to Naked Mobile’s <em>#Wanderlove Scholarship Challenge</em> (see excerpt below) ultimately won over a team of Coconino Community College Foundation administrators who comprised the judging panel. <strong><em>“I would take my mom on my three-day road trip. I am always so busy with school and work it’s difficult to find time for the one thing that matters, family. My mom is the most inspiring, influential, and hard-working woman in my life and we’ve become so much closer over the past few years. I would like to do something special for her and be able to have quality mother-daughter time while seeing some of the most beautiful places.”</em></strong> –<em> Faith Lee<img class="alignleft size-medium wp-image-2921" src="https://nakedmobile.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/Naked-Mobile-Wanderlove-Flagstaff-Scholarship-Winner-2018-300x200.jpg" alt="" width="300" height="200" /></em> The scholarship winnings will benefit Faith as she works toward completing her Associates of Applied Science Degree (AAS) in nursing at Coconino Community College. Her career goal is to serve as a traveling RN around the country and the world!

How to Find the… Best Cocktail.

Thankfully neither you nor I will ever know the pain of “Prohibition” days. It was a dark time when there was no “Happy Hour,” no last call, no nightcap, no keg stands.   Okay, maybe that’s not exactly true… You’ve heard about those hidden little bars and drinking clubs called “speakeasys,” right? In these secret places, the cocktails kept flowing despite Prohibition (i.e. the doomed-to-failure 18th Amendment), which banned the manufacture, transportation, and sale of liquor from January 29, 1919 to the day it was repealed with the passing of the 21st amendment on December 5, 1933.

Ever Been Kissed by a Wolf?

I’m going to guess you’ve probably never given much thought to meeting a wolf, let alone getting a kiss from one. I hadn’t. But when I heard about Wolfwood Refuge from a friend my curiosity was peaked. Located in the rolling hills of Ignacio, Colorado about 30 minutes southeast of Durango, Wolfwood is home to more than 60 animals ranging from 100% straight-up wolves to wolf-dogs to full dogs and (most recently) a coyote toddler named “Wile E.”— who thinks he’s a wolf. (Seriously. I even had the chance to hear him try to howl like a wolf when the main pack started howling on the morning I visited.)
