Mark (left) and his Wheaton roommate Ryan Kerns ’15 (right) recently canoed together on Long Lake at HoneyRock, Wheaton’s outdoor center for leadership development. Mark says, “Canoeing in zero degree weather gets the heart pumping, but the excitement of being out on the water in the middle of winter made it worth the risk.
