Sen. Sanders Meets With Vermont Upward Bound Students

A group of about 10 Vermont Upward Bound students met with Senator Sanders to discuss their recent participation in a successful high school greening competition hosted by Johnson State College. The students, from high schools throughout northern Vermont, each submitted a formal proposal detailing projects they would undertake to make their schools greener. They also held creative performances illustrating their understanding of current environmental challenges. The Upward Bound program prepares students for success in high school and enrollment in college by offering a range of academic, counseling, social, and recreational activities.
