Maine news media interview Tyler Fish '96 about his North Pole conquest

Tyler Fish '96 offers encore

The Portland Press Herald, Lewiston Sun Journal and Maine Public Broadcasting Network’s Maine Things Considered all sought out Tyler Fish ’96 during his recent visit to Maine and Bates as part of the 90th anniversary celebration of the Bates Outing Club. Last April, Fish and friend John Huston became the first Americans to complete an unsupported, unassisted ski trek to the North Pole. Fish tells the Press Herald that his Outing Club experiences fostered his adventurous spirit. ”Life is largely made up of people you meet and opportunities you choose to take,” he said. ”One of the things that helped me for sure is the Bates education that taught me that it takes a lot of hard work to do something well.”
