Area students work featured in Castleton Scholars Celebration
Each year, Castleton University presents their Castleton Scholars Celebration: A Showcase of Original Student Work. The annual celebration gives the university the opportunity to showcase the rich variety of students’ scholarly and creative endeavors across academic departments and programs. Each presentation arises from course assignments, capstone experiences, and independent study programs, all supported and guided by faculty mentors.
The following Addison County students will be taking part in the celebration: Amber Leavitt, Angela Golding and Justin Whitney of Bristol; Caitlin McCluskey of Middlebury; Oliver Cunningham of North Ferrisburgh and Devyn Potter of Starksboro.
This year’s event features work from 56 students, representing 16 different programs. Students will be on hand to speak informally about their work. Presentation topics include racial bias, discovering antibiotic-producing bacteria in local soil samples, the lives of women artists in history, food insecurity in schools, superheroes in an age of terrorism and issues of rape culture.
