LSC UPWARD BOUND STUDENTS AT TRiO -- Lyndon State College Upward Bound students Duncan Martin-Baker and Bess Reed attended the Vermont TRiO Day at the Statehouse celebration in Montpelier on March 10. The students met with their local legislators, had a tour of the historic building, and observed the House in session. The students shared their experiences as Upward Bound students and learned about the legislative process, the history of TRiO programs, and received encouragement from their local representatives to keep working towards their postsecondary goals. Bess Reed is a junior this year at Lyndon Institute, and Duncan Martin-Baker is a junior at Craftsbury Academy. Both students are dedicated three year members of the LSC Upward Bound program where they spend six weeks of each summer living on the LSC campus, taking college preparatory courses, volunteering in the community, and preparing for college. The students represented their communities, their schools, and the LSC Upward Bound program. Above, Duncan and Bess are shown with Sen. Jane Kitchel, who represents the Caledonia/Orange District in the Vermont Senate.
