Students participate in Castleton mentoring program

CASTLETON — Eight Addison County young adults who are studying at Castleton University have become certified members of the Castleton University Mentoring Program.
Those eight local mentors are Ryan Crowningshield and Justin Connor of Addison, Danielle Forand and Rachael McCormick of Starksboro, Jane Russell of Vergennes, Angela Dupoise of New Haven, Aaron Smith of Middlebury and Monica Connor of Orwell.
The Castleton University volunteer mentoring program matches Castleton undergraduates with local fourth- and fifth-grade students from the Castleton Village School. During weekly informal meetings throughout the academic year, the college student role models provide social support and encouragement for the children to aspire to attend college.
