Alumni eNewsletter: Gallaudet Alumna to be on CBS, “Survivor: The Amazon” (Archives)

Christy Smith, who graduated from Gallaudet in 2000, will be one of the 16 people (eight men and eight women) on the CBS blockbuster program, Survivor. Christy will be on “Survivor: The Amazon,” which is scheduled to begin on Thursday, February 13. This is the sixth installment of Survivor and, for the first time, it will have a team of men versus a team of women stranded for 40-days in a remote section of the Amazon River. According to the CBS website, the 16 Americans are forced to band together and carve out a new existence, form a cooperative society, build shelter, and gather and catch food. Who will outwit, outplay, and outlast all others in the Amazon and win the $1 million? Christy, who has some residual hearing, received her bachelor of arts degree in sociology/ criminology. She recently worked as a children’s adventure guide for the Aspen Camp School for the Deaf in Colorado. Christy is from Basalt, Colo. For more information, check out the website:
