Benjamin Tower

Mountain Mallards Instructor

As shown juggling while balancing on a slackline, Benjamin Tower is a Lobo and a founding member of our Mountain SOL community. He teaches Mallards, summer workshops, other after-school classes, and our Cheat Mountain summer camps. Benjamin has been a student in Mountain SOL since it was first created. He was one of the first to transition from student to staff. He contributes to a large portion of Mountain SOL’s big picture planning. 

Benjamin is graduate (a Guio) of both the Scout Path and the Medic Path. The Scout Path is an intensive sur-thrival training program completed at our Cheat Mountain campus. Having completed it means he is competent in wilderness skills including advanced fire-building, shelter construction, camouflage, navigation, and foraging. As a graduate of the Medic Path, Benjamin is also thoroughly trained in first response in a wilderness medical emergency. He is certified in Advanced Wilderness First Aid, and he has deftly used his skills in real medical scenarios.

As Mountain SOL School continues to grow, Benjamin will continue helping with the organization of the school and the development of new classes and programs. He enjoys teaching Mallards and plans to continue teaching whenever possible. Benjamin is also a full-time college student at WVU studying Neuroscience.
