The MVU National Honor Society raised over $900 for the American Cancer Society by selling daffodils. They were presented with this bear as a reward for being the top fundraising team in Franklin County. We are so proud of our students for raising funds and awareness for this awesome cause.
In our 11-12th grade Mechanics II class here at MVU, taught by Joe Barney, students made this awesome sign:
The sign is the result of a competition held at VTC's diesel campus in Randolph, VT. It took 3.5 hours to make, and it will now be displayed with pride in our mechanics shop. The competition was sponsored by the National Guard, and the students utilized the National Guard's support and equipment to make the sign. The participating MVU students took second place, and each participating student won a $1,500 scholarship to either Vermont Technical College or Advanced Welding Institute. Great work, team! We're proud of you!

MVU's Model UN club went to a conference in Champlain, NY to engage in a simulation of the procedures that take place at the world-wide level.
Model United Nations is an academic activity during which students mimic the role of the real United Nations and its influence on the world. The teams learn about diplomacy, international policy, and debates. Students discussed topics ranging from the colonization of outer space to domestic terrorism and terrorist networks.
MVU has participated in this conference for at least a decade, and the students were supported by their teachers Brooks Sturtevant, Alyssa Urban, and Ben Green. Check out the awesome pictures from the event below!
Our 8th grade students were working hard in the IDEA Lab and were busy learning how they could create art using electronics with our new laser cutter called a Glow Forge. Each student came up with a design and then we used the laser to cut that design out of acrylic. The students also learned how to solder and create a circuit on the back of a piece of wood with a slit cut in it. They used LEDs (light emitting diodes) and a small battery to complete the circuit.
Check out their awesome creations below!

Last Friday four MVU students, Jahnessa Ryea, Savannah Fellows, Rachel Dumeny and Sally Zhang, competed in the annual Vermont Treasury Cup Challenge in Montpelier. The Treasury Cup is a statewide competition designed "to promote student interest in and knowledge of personal finance, economics, and consumer affairs topics", and winners of the competition receive money from VSAC. Students enjoyed lunch at the Vermont State House, and Savannah won an iPad!
MVU and CVU tied for 7th place this year, although the TBirds have already planned a winning strategy and are ready to come back next year with a vengeance!
