Fred’s story inspires others:

Fred’s amazing journey has inspired countless others to follow in his footsteps. Teachers, administrators, doctors, dentists, scientists and people who just want to make a difference by improving the lives of the less fortunate. One of the best examples of Fred’s inspiration is the recent trip to New Britain of a group of volunteer dentists and support staff of the Rotary Club.

“Building on...The School That Fell From The Sky" is the story of the 49er Breakfast Rotary of Nevada City trip to Papua New Guinea in October 2011 to continue the work at the school that Fred Hargesheimer started in 1963.

John Lane is principal scientist of his own firm, Chico Environmental Science and Planning, and an adjunct professor at CSU, Chico in the College of Natural Sciences, the two positions allowing him to combine his passions for adventure, exploration, and conservation. John is also a board member of The Airman’s Memorial Foundation which administers to the schools and clinics founded by Fred.
