Ruth Kreuzer loves to travel. She also likes to help people tell their stories of travel and life in the wider world using the tools of technology along with their oral narratives. She is now coordinating her 21st semester of "Vicarious Voyagers." Ruth herself sometimes presents an illustrated lecture on some exotic place she has been to. Her most recent out-of-country travels include: Newfoundland and Spain.
Fall 2015, Ruth gave another Vicarious Voyagers talk: Newfoundland: A Tourist View. Whales, puffins, cod, moose, icebergs, fog, isolated village, ancient and native cultures, lighthouses, boats; homemade entertainments. Ruth is a world traveler who also enjoys traveling in the US and Canada.
Ruth has served on the SOAR Board of Directors since 2005. She has chaired the "Publicity and Outreach"for many years. In that latter capacity, she happily serves as SOAR webmaster and works on many of the SOAR publications, getting them ready for the print shop. You'll see Ruth in the classrooms taking photos for the web site (to give to the presenters later). She also is helping the presenters set up the tech aspects of their courses or presentations before classes start -sometimes even pulling out some tech equipment from the trunk of her car when needed in the classroom.
"Ruth received the Super SOARer Award" in 2008; and the "Outstanding Contribution to SOAR Award" in 2014.
