Talia ’24 and Tyler ’23 Recognized for Recent Achievements

Talia Gibbs ’24 Receives Vermont Scholastic Art & Writing Awards

The Brattleboro Museum and Art Center serves as the Vermont affiliate for the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, a prestigious national program that offers exhibition opportunities and scholarships to young artists and writers. Talia Gibbs, Class of 2024, was recently awarded with a silver key for her poem, We Missed the Bus, and a gold key for her critical essay, When Greed Overpowers Love. Congratulations, Talia!

Tyler Loiselle ’23 Receives Eagle Scout Rank

On January 15, family and friends gathered together to watch as Tyler Loiselle, Class of 2023, was presented with Boy Scout’s highest honor, the rank of Eagle, and fellow Eagle Scout Mark Cline Lucey conducted the swearing-in. To achieve the Eagle rank, a Scout must earn at least 21 merit badges, fulfill leadership roles and display outdoor skills, demonstrate by example the Scout Oath and Law, and complete a comprehensive service project in the community. Only 4% of Scouts achieve the rank of Eagle.

Tyler has been involved with Scouts for 12 years. He was a Cub Scout for five years and has been a Boy Scout for the last seven years. During that time, he earned 39 merit badges, participated in numerous hikes, camp outs and other activities, attended summer camp each year and went on two high adventure trips with a third one planned for this summer. Tyler chose to have his Eagle service project benefit VCS and is proud of the two new signs that will be greeting visitors to campus for years to come.

Congratulations to Tyler and to his parents extraordinaire, Jen & Lance Loiselle!
