Service-Learning & Sustainability at Green Mountain College - Poultney, VT
Monday, April 28, 2008
Yesterday (Sunday, April 26th) was Honors Tea, the annual Green Mountain recognition of academic and student life achievement. Cloth napkins, fancy sandwiches, center pieces, and two glorious hours of back-patting. The Service-Learning office presented the Student Service-Learning Award to Sam Tischler for his efforts in a recent Ethnographic Field Methods course -among others. Professor Jim Graves received the Faculty/Staff Service-Learning Award, not only for his own efforts instructing service-learning courses, but for regularly recruiting and including other faculty and their students in service-learning efforts that have all but eradicated garlic mustard from the campus grounds.
Congrats to our Service-Learning rock stars, and to all those recognized yesterday.
