A diploma ... 30 years later

June 7, 2007

By MEGAN JAMES

MIDDLEBURY — After an accident five years ago that severed an artery in his heart, damaged his short-term memory and left him blinded for life, Jim Michaud decided to finish something he started more than 30 years ago: his high school education.

The South Starksboro resident dropped out of Mount Abraham Union High School during his junior year, when his family’s Lincoln home burned to the ground in 1977. At his mother’s urging, Michaud returned twice more to try and graduate. But he had already started a job at Shea Motors in Middlebury, and as he put it, school just “wasn’t for me.”

But this Saturday, on his 47th birthday, having finished the adult diploma program with Vermont Adult Learning, Michaud, complete with cap, gown, dark glasses and a cane, will process with the rest of the Mount Abe seniors to finally get that diploma.

“It’s about the only thing I’ve started and never finished,” he said.

Here she is ...

June 7, 2007

By MEGAN JAMES

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury College junior Rachel Ann Cole entered the Miss Vermont pageant on a whim. Flipping through channels over winter break this year, she happened upon the Miss America pageant and just couldn’t stop watching.

She had participated in a pageant before. At two years old, her mother signed her up for one at the suggestion of a friend.

“I think I cried on stage and never did it again,” Cole said.

But this year, she signed herself up, developed a sturdy platform — “Building Bridges Through Literacy: Closing the Educational Gap” — and followed through.

On Sunday, at St. Michael’s College in Colchester, Cole was crowned Miss Vermont 2007, a title that will take her to the Miss America Pageant next January.

Changes to Mt. Abe busing fall short for the year

June 7, 2007

By CYRUS LEVESQUE

BRISTOL — The school boards from the five Addison Northeast Supervisory Union (ANeSU) towns  of Bristol, Lincoln, Monkton, New Haven and Starksboro are creating a committee to study the district’s transportation needs and how to accommodate a longer school day at Mount Abraham Union High School.

But at a Tuesday evening meeting, the consensus among school board members was to not go forward in the coming school year with an administration-backed plan to achieve the longer day by doing separate bus runs for high school and elementary students.

“For this year, it’s not going to happen,” said Lanny Smith of New Haven, chairman of the Mount Abraham Union High School board. “The question is, should it be pursued in the future?”

The informal consensus to form a committee was reached during a meeting of the Mount Abe school board on Tuesday night, although members of ANeSU elementary school boards were present as well.
