VUHS names top 2018 graduates

VERGENNES — Vergennes Union High School has announced the Valedictorian, Salutatorian and Third Honors recipients for 2018. All three will speak at VUHS graduation this Friday, June 15.
Ally Atkins (pictured, right) has been named the class Valedictorian. Atkins strives to do her best in everything she does, which includes maintaining high honor roll while taking an extremely rigorous course load, volunteering, participating in athletics, and contributing as an active member of the VUHS community.
Not only has Atkins participated in both band and chorus for the past four years, she also has been selected for both Commodore Singers and Commodore Jazz. Atkins was also selected as VUHS’s Green and Gold Scholar her junior year and has been recognized at our underclass awards ceremony each year both in academics and athletics. This fall, Atkins will study Neuroscience at Union College, where she was awarded the prestigious Success Scholar grant.
Lance Bergmans (pictured, left) is the Class of 2018 Salutatorian. Bergmans has consistently earned high honor roll throughout his high school career, all while challenging himself with an extremely demanding schedule that included numerous Advanced Placement and dual enrollment courses. While at VUHS, he was a dedicated musician and varsity athlete, with a particular love of basketball.
He has also been regularly recognized at underclass awards assemblies for excellence across several subjects and at the end of his junior year, he was VUHS’ Clarkson University High School Achievement Award recipient. Next fall, Bergmans will begin his studies at the University of Vermont as a Vermont Scholar. He will be studying Exercise Science with an eye on becoming a physical therapist.
Megan Tarte (pictured, right) is the Third Honors recipient for the Class of 2018. Tarte is an amazing young woman — full of academic and musical gifts that she diligently honed throughout her time at VUHS. She has consistently shown an exceptional commitment to her studies — having earned numerous underclassmen awards for academic excellence — and she has challenged herself with dual enrollment coursework in pursuit of her dreams and interests.
