Local students honored as scholar leaders


Nik Laskaris and Jackie DeFreest, students at Harwood Union Middle School, were recently honored as Middle Level Scholar Leaders at the ninth annual Vermont Scholar Leader awards banquet on June 6 at Norwich University in Northfield. 

Students from middle level schools across the state were honored. The event is organized by the Vermont Association for Middle Level Education (VAMLE) and the New England League of Middle Schools (NELMS) with supporting sponsorship from Lifetouch National School Studios.

Nearly 400 students, educators and parents attended, along with Governor Douglas, Brian O'Regan, Deputy Commissioner of Education for the Vermont Department of Education, Greg Clark, Vice Chair of the Vermont House of Representatives Education Committee and members of the VAMLE and NELMS boards. The banquet celebrates the achievements of the middle level students who are representative of the many fine young adolescents in all middle level schools in the state of Vermont. Seventy-five eighth-grade students from 40 schools were honored this year.
