GMC Represents at the VCC Gala

Vermont Campus Compact (VCC) held its annual Gala and award ceremony at the UVM Davis Center yesterday and Green Mountain College was there in force. The event recognized service and civic engagement in the 22 VCC member institutions, and offered workshop and display opportunities to highlight these efforts across the state. Jacob Park and Joe Bossen presented Fostering Corporate Citizenship through Service-Learning and several GMC folks were recognized for their incredible commitment to service at the college and in Poultney.
  • Thayer Raines - Finalist, Campus Leadership for Civic Engagement Award
  • Susan Sutheimer - Finalist, Engaged Scholar Award
  • Peter Davis - Recipient, Commitment to Service and Engagement Award
  • Marli Rupe & the Poultney Mettowee Natural Resources Conservation District - Recipient, Engaged Community Partner Award
Of course, Dawn pitched in with the members of her VISTA team to make sure the event ran smoothly. Also from GMC, Francis Demby, and the Brennans attended. President Brennan was recognized by UVM President Dan Fogel (Chair of VCC's Board of Directors and the Gala proceedings) for his efforts at GMC as Jack finishes his tenure here.
