Dan Corn Receives Citizen's Award for Bravery

AMS Guide Dan Corn, currently guiding on Mt. Hunter, received the prestigious Department of the Interior Citizen’s Award for Bravery.

The award was presented by Department of the Interior Secretary, Ken Salazar in Washington DC last month.

Dan was part of a major rescue on July 21, 2010, when a fast- moving lightning storm caught 17 climbers near the summit of the 13,770-foot Grand Teton in Grand Teton National Park. Sixteen of the climbers were rescued; one died from injuries in a fall during the brunt of the storm.

Dan's skills in the wilderness are exemplary and we are very proud of him.
