Cindy Rust, a science teacher at Post Falls High School, has been named the 2015 Snow Sports Ambassador of the Year by the organizers of the Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month/Bring a Friend initiative. Rust is an avid snowboarder, and the first runner up in last year's competition.
This season, Rust brought 27 students from the Post Falls Ski and Snowboard Club for beginner lessons. The students traveled to either to Schweitzer Mountain in Idaho or Mt. Spokane in Washington throughout the season. Rust founded the club seven years ago with the help of the Colorado-based SOS Outreach, Mt. Spokane, and two other teachers. Since the club began, it has grown from 19 students to 83.
