Mt. Abe grads to share their stories at the library

MARTHA BRUHL IS one of three Mount Abraham Union High School graduates who will present on her study abroad experience at the next One World Library Project event at Lawrence Memorial Library in Bristol on Thursday, Jan. 2, from 7-8 p.m.

BRISTOL — Each year, Vermont schools send young graduates out into the world. To learn how some of these young people are making their mark, the public is invited to “Bringing Our Community to the World,” a discussion with three Mount Abe graduates. The program takes place on Thursday, Jan. 2, at Lawrence Memorial Library, from 7-8 p.m. The event is sponsored by One World Library Project. It is free and handicapped accessible.
The mission of One World Library Project is “to bring the world to our community,” and to that end a small scholarship is offered each year to a graduating Mount Abe senior who is interested in broadening their knowledge and interest in world cultures as part of their college experience. In this program we offer a twist on this theme, featuring our scholarship recipients who have gone out into the world bringing values and gifts from our community.
The program will begin with a brief slide presentation and continue as an informal dis-cussion. Community members will have the opportunity to ask questions as well.
The graduates include:
Cora Funke, a freshman at Boston University majoring in Political Science and Envi-ronmental Analysis and Policy. She likes playing basketball, skiing, reading, and making pottery.
Martha Bruhl, a sophomore at the University of Vermont majoring in Anthropology with minors in Environmental Studies and Health and Society. In her free time she loves to read, cook and travel.
Lane Fisher, an international affairs and French major at the George Washington University’s Elliott School of International Affairs in Washington D.C. She has followed her love of languages and cultures to France and Morocco, and has delved into policymaking and governmental work through internships at her congressman’s office and with the U.S. Department of State.
