RVTC students earn Aaron Douglas Outstanding Dependability Award

The River Valley Technical Center (RVTC) awarded the Aaron Douglas Outstanding Dependability award to students at a gathering on Friday, May 18.

The award is given in honor of a former Horticulture and Natural Resources student from Green Mountain Union High School who displayed outstanding dependability in the face of challenging circumstances. Aaron passed away in February 2009 after a long illness.

“This award means a great deal to the staff and alumni at the River Valley Technical Center. It is a huge honor that these students showed the dependability and integrity to earn it,” said Scott Farr, Superintendent/Director at RVTC.

In order to be considered for the award, a student must have a 97 percent or better attendance rate, must come to class prepared to work each day, dress appropriately, follow instructions, complete tasks, and be true to their word.
