Each year, 10 boys and 10 girls from across the state of Vermont are awarded this honor for their academic achievement, outstanding leadership, and service to their communities. The award recipients were recognized at a reception on January 8th at the State House.
Headmaster Tom Lovett said, "Andrew and his family should be very proud of this honor! To be considered as one of the top 1,000 scholars in the country is impressive. I am also proud of the faculty and staff who have helped prepare him."
