STRIVING FOR SERVICE: For the past three summers, Concord native Tyler Andrews
was a group leader of STRIVE Trips, which coordinates international service trips for US high school student athletes in Peru and
Kenya. Recently, he began overseeing the program as director and co-owner of the organization.
Andrews, a senior studying mechanical engineering and astrophysics at Tufts University, said students assist with teaching and building projects at rural schools with structured workouts twice a day. They stay at high altitude training centers at both locations, with an optional one-week Spanish language immersion program offered for the first time this year in Peru.
