On Thursday, June 8th, the graduating class of the Leadership Southeast Vermont (LSEVT) program attended their Commencement Ceremony at the Hartness House in Springfield. The largest class in the history of the program, 18 participants received their completion certificates. Three teams presented their group projects, including a brochure with volunteer opportunities for the Springfield region, a new promotional video for the LSEVT program, and a Leadership workshop shared at Future Business Leaders of America’s Spring Conference. Senator Becca Balint was the keynote speaker. A private tour of the underground Amateur Telescope Makers Museum and tunnels to the Hartness Observatory followed the event. Footage of the speech, presentations, and graduation ceremony can be seen on SAPA TV and on their website.
