Matt Dahlgran – As a recreation major in college, Matt always told people he went to college to learn how to play. It always seem to be an appropriate answer given the content of his classes. Now, seeing the incredible work of AquAbility, he sees “play” with a purpose each day. As a non-profit professional for 15 years, Matt has always appreciated the impact non-profits have on individuals, both staff and participant. Now, with AquAbility, Matt as a chance to see the story numbers can tell about the program and the growth of the participants. Matt and his family have been in Boise for 3 years and enjoy the culture, climate, and people.
