Thru-Hiker Now at Big Brothers/Sisters

The article titled "Big Brothers, Big Sisters Hires New Leader" online as of 8 February 2008 on the web site describes the arrival in Pittsfield, MA of Raymond Ross as the new executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Berkshire County. He's a hiker:
"An avid hiker and backpacker, he and his wife of 28 years, Susan, completed hiking the entire Appalachian Trail in 1989. Ross completed the trail a second time in 2004, being one of fewer than 100 people to do so according to the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. He is a member of Appalachian Mountain Club's 4,000-Footer of New England Club, having climbed all 65 mountains exceeding that elevation in New England and is an end-to-end hiker of Vermont's Long Trail."
