by The Editors on July 23, 2010

Parker B2SAccording to the Tahoe Daily Tribune, Airblaster founder Travis Parker is going back to school.

Sierra Nevada College has awarded a scholarship to professional snowboarder Travis Parker. Parker will attend Sierra Nevada College on an annual art scholarship in the amount of $15,000 per year, totaling $60,000 over a four-year period. Parker will enter the college in the fall as a fine arts major in painting and drawing, and also plans to get his teaching credential.

It’s so good to see snowboarders getting a good art education. Because nothing is more important in today’s economic realities than a fine art degree from a school no one has ever heard of.

that place is kinda a degree mill for rich kids who want to come play it up in the snow. nothing against them, but might be sorta marketing ploy to get more kids to attend?!?!?
