奖学金提升申博官网州的聪明和帮助塑造我们国家的未来

At every one of Vermont’s high schools each fall, a student begins senior year with a head start on what’s next, the news that by virtue of holding their school’s highest academic distinction, they’ve earned a full-tuition Green & Gold Scholarship to the University of Vermont. This financial support is built on the generosity of the late Genevieve Patrick; part of her $9 million bequest, realized in 2000, created the foundation for the scholarship. More than four hundred Vermonters have since earned their UVM degrees on the strength of this support, many of them graduating to careers in their home state. In this issue, we catch up with several Green & Gold alumni and a current scholar.

一个更好的地方

沿着路线2博尔顿站立,乙料员'12认为关于他的国家对奇滕登县护林工作的问题。特别是,如果有不同的职责和挑战,本作中的森林,申博官网州县最“城市”。东朝手势博尔顿谷,他使点有70000英亩栖息地不间断的通过道路,清除了斯托。和到西部,另一个70000英亩不间断的跨骆驼的驼峰,罗宾斯山,私人地块。

 
点进行。即使在人口较多奇滕登县,申博官网的森林仍然是绿山国家经济,娱乐和视觉景观的广阔和重要组成部分。后来,在一块土地,他拥有博尔顿,料员指出几十年前差的伐木行为所造成的损失和细节步行了一个陡峭的斜坡如何,有一点帮助和大量的时间,森林能在一个健康的方式再生。他的工作的一个重要方面,攻丝说,涉及具有私人土地所有者类似的谈话,帮助他们更好地了解和管理他们的森林。

Tapper grew up in Saxtons River, attending Vermont Academy on scholarship as a day student. Looking back, he says he wouldn’t be a forester today or, very likely, even living in Vermont, without the financial support and direction of the Green & Gold Scholarship. John Shane, emeriti faculty member, was a key influence on Tapper, who recalls Shane’s lectures for their direct style, wisdom, and lasting impact: “No slides, no PowerPoint, just a piece of chalk in his hand. He would talk to us and everybody was riveted. We used to call it ‘John Shane Explains the Mysteries of the Universe.’”

教学中,无论是在树木学它的成人教育课程,或与地主讨论,是攻丝机的工作的一部分,而巴蒂尔的例子还指导他的做法。机会“来证明什么好森林管理看起来像”是他生命中的强大的动力。 “我可以做让世界变得更美好,而我在我的工作,这是相当惊人的,业务”料员说。

照顾

Full disclosure, this is Abbey Rouleau’s second turn in Vermont Quarterly related to the Green & Gold Scholarship. Thirteen years ago, she was Abbey Lamos, a first-year nursing student featured in an ad for the UVM Fund—“Investing in UVM students is investing in Vermont’s future.”

Vermont’s future now Vermont’s present, Rouleau ’10 has just finished a Friday morning shift as a palliative care nurse practitioner at Central Vermont Medical Center in Berlin, sitting down in the lobby to discuss her career and reflect on her undergraduate years. Rouleau was a sophomore at Richford High School, the oldest of six kids in a family with deep roots in Franklin County, when she learned about the Green & Gold Scholarship. Her words in 2007 and 2019 are virtually identical: “When I realized what the scholarship could mean to me and to my family, I worked extra hard to become first in my class.”

In addition to the Green & Gold full tuition scholarship, Rouleau earned a Freeman Nursing Scholarship that covered her room and board, setting her on solid footing financially as she set out on the career in nursing she envisioned. Her interest in the field was initially sparked by helping care for her grandmother and, as she gained education and experience, she was particularly drawn to end-of-life care. A palliative care nurse at Central Vermont for the past six years, she recently completed her master’s online from Drexel University and became a consulting provider for palliative care in the same department.

“如果我们的团队可以使它很容易就能为患者及家属,我找了很多在履行的,”她说。 “如果患者更舒适或他们感觉像被听到了他们的价值观或我们正在帮助让他们回家,他们希望成为生命的尽头,我觉得我可以那一天离开工作岗位,并说,“好吧,我做了一个差异。”

Expect a one-time college debater and current practicing attorney to be prepared. Sitting in Kestrel Coffee on lower Maple Street in Burlington, waiting on a late-afternoon appointment to discuss her college days and current career, Jess Bullock ’12 has sketched a timeline of key moments in her young life. “I appreciated the Green & Gold at the time,” she says. “But through the lens of somebody who is now twelve years past high school graduation, I can look back and see how being offered that scholarship was a catalyst for what came next, so many links in my life trace to that point.”
 
Though Bullock was involved and, clearly, strong academically as a student at Mill River Union High School, just outside of Rutland, she says she was still apprehensive about college. Receiving news of the Green & Gold as she entered senior year began to shift that perspective. “It felt like UVM put a vote of confidence in my abilities, the sense that I had a voice that was worth being developed,” she reflects.

通过书的约束

写作,阅读和谈论文学的热爱吸引了伦纳德·巴滕施泰因'17书家社区生活/学习作为第一年的学生。画面中的“住在读书俱乐部,”巴滕施泰因说。但如果一个霞多丽喝着圈的“书友会”让人想起愿景,考虑代替UVM本科生承担的概念:竞争性写作的战斗之夜,书主题的咖啡厅爬网,通宵写马拉松,朋克摇滚演出比林斯库,并大胆讨论是否“一些星球大战分拆小说更好文学比任何乔伊斯写过。”

从生活/学习套件坚挺那些最初的友谊在大学内(外)和巴滕斯坦导致了魁地奇球队和水塔报纸的编辑相关的激情总裁。而住宅的学习经验加深了他的愿望,做什么他现在做什么,高中英语教学。

For the past three years, Bartenstein has passed on that love for literature and writing as a teacher at Mount Saint Joseph Academy, his high school alma mater in Rutland. (Children of the seventies may be hearing a faint echo of the “Welcome Back, Kotter” theme right about now.) He acknowledges some initial apprehension at standing in front of classes in the same school where he was in a student’s seat not so long before, his teachers now his colleagues. But, appreciating the small classes and close community, he’s found a happy teaching home. This year, Bartenstein’s courses include American Literature, AP Literature & Composition, and religion classes for sophomores, in addition to supervising the staff creating MSJ’s yearbook.

对于一些老师最好的时刻,巴滕施泰因说,是“当一个学生能够最终‘得到’它。我们很高兴地看到事物点击学生的头脑。”
