Eighth-grader Gabe Frankel and seventh-grader Rowan Clough, students at Harwood Union Middle School, were recently June 6 at the 22nd annual Vermont Scholar Leader Awards banquet at Norwich University in Northfield.
Seventy-eight students from 39 schools were honored this year as scholar-leaders, based on academics, leadership, positive attitudes, and service to classmates and the school.
More than 350 students, educators, and parents attended the banquet, along with board members of the Vermont Association of Middle Level Educators and New England League of Middle Schools.
The keynote addresses were given by students Lia Rubel from Spaulding High School and John “Jack” Fannon from St. Johnsbury Academy.
Students are selected by their school, based on the Vermont Framework of Standards and Learning Opportunities.
