LYNDON CTR., Vt. – Each spring Lyndon State College formally recognizes the achievements of its Adult Learners. To receive the Adult Achievement Award, students must be at least 23 years old, have a minimum 3.2 GPA, be of sophomore standing, and be nominated by a member of the college’s staff or faculty. Lyndon is proud to announce that we had 19 honorees this year.
Interim President Nolan Atkins and Director of Career Services Amy Wright were on hand to present the Adult Learner Achievement Awards at a ceremony in April. This year’s award recipients were Chiara Carmolli-Anderson, Kathee Carr, Dan Cote, Robert Grimm, Sierra Hargrave, Margaret Hayes, Jannel Heisholt, Dawn Irwin, Evan Johnson, Kristin Lange, Adam Messier, Matthew Peters, Andrea Poe, Katherine Renner, Kristin Rimal, and Aaron Young.
At the same ceremony, eligible students were also inducted into the Lyndon State College chapter of Alpha Sigma Lambda, Beta Lambda. To qualify for induction, students must be at least 23 years old, have a minimum 3.2 GPA, and have taken at least 24 credits at LSC – 12 of which must be in the General Education Unit. Only the top twenty percent of these students are invited into the Society. This year’s inductees were Tara Nichols, Patricia Paiva, and Wenyu Xie. Greg Caplan, president of the Beta Lambda chapter, delivered the induction oath.
