CMC student set to blog from Olympics

Dylan Derryberry, a second-year student and blogger at Colorado Mountain College, has been selected as one of two winners of a national contest to blog at the Winter Olympic Games. The Microsoft Inc.-sponsored contest will send Dylan to Vancouver for ten days of covering the events via his blog, which he started at the college's campus at Spring Valley.

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado – For the final week of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, local Colorado Mountain College student Dylan Derryberry will be posting blog entries from British Columbia, Canada.

The 19-year-old student at CMC’s Spring Valley campus, is one of two Colorado bloggers who won the Microsoft Corp.-sponsored Office Winter Games national contest.

Derryberry will be at the Vancouver Games from today through the closing ceremonies on Feb. 28.

Derryberry is seeking an associate of arts degree with a theater emphasis and has participated in several plays at CMC. He says he wants to pursue a journalism career after his college studies are over.

Colorado Mountain College’s student blogging program is in its second year and continues to grow. Seven student bloggers (from each of the college’s three residential campuses in Spring Valley, Leadville and Steamboat Springs, plus Summit Campus) write about their experiences, post photos and videos, and give an inside look at what it’s like to be a student at Colorado Mountain College. Derryberry’s blog chronicles his college experience and activities held across campus.
