A bright future for Aspen’s Jack Bird

Staff report

Aspen High School graduate Jack Bird has been a busy man of late.

Bird, 22, graduated June 14 from Santa Clara University in California and then traveled to Mexico, where he created an agroforestry program guide similar to one he produced last summer in Zambia.

He then went to Korea, where he presented a paper on the guide that he produced in Zambia.

A 2010 graduate of Aspen High, Bird double majored in environmental science and political science at Santa Clara. He was a member of the Phi Beta Kappa national honors society, a participant in the honors program and a Pi Sigma Alpha, a political-science honor society. He had the honor of being the recipient of the Nobili Award for outstanding male student.

Bird’s goal, according to his resume, is to “work with a socially and environmentally responsible organization aimed at promoting clean-energy technologies and sustainable business practices.”

He is the son of Aspen residents Molly Ireland and Don Bird.
