Nicole Harran, a senior at Concord High School and a Lyndon State College Upward Bound student, was recently offered the substantial Green and Gold Scholarship from the University of Vermont. Harran was notified that she will receive a four-year full tuition scholarship, currently valued at over $39,000 if she is accepted to UVM and maintains a 3.0 grade point average. UVM awards the Green and Gold Scholarship to the highest ranked student at the end of their 11th-grade year in each accredited high school in Vermont.
As a senior this year at Concord, Harran is a member of the National Honor Society and VTLSP. She has an extensive community service record and has volunteered nearly 150 hours in her community over the past three years with Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital's library, and at Play and Learn Daycare in Lyndonville.
Harran also created and administers a free afterschool dance program for children from her K-12 school. In recognition of her leadership abilities, she was selected to represent the Lyndon State College Upward Bound program at the 2010 New England Student Leadership Conference, and at TRiO Day in 2011.
Harran has also been a multi-year volunteer with Warm the Children and the Burklyn Arts Craft Fairs. She is a dedicated student and an outstanding young woman who is looking to explore careers in nursing or education.
She is the daughter of Kathryn Gordon and Michael Harran of Concord.
