Edmunds Middle School Unified Bowling
January 14, 2016
Two EMS Unified Bowling Teams participated in an event last month in Barre with/against 21 other Vermont middle schools. The groups earned 3rd and 4th place finishes, and are funded by Edmunds students and staff who participated in the Penguin Plunge last February, raising nearly $10,000 for Special Olympics Vermont. Edmunds receives a percentage of those funds for EMS Project Unified Bocce, Track and Bowling Teams.
Special Olympics Project UNIFY is an education-based project that uses sports and education programs to activate young people to develop school communities where all youth are agents of change – fostering respect, dignity and advocacy for people with intellectual disabilities.

Lydia Stricker, a BTC/Mount Mansfield Union High School student in the Medical and Sports Sciences Program, was nominated as a Vermont Presidential Scholar in Career and Technical Education (CTE). Lydia was selected as one of only five CTE students in the state nominated to Vermont Secretary of Education Rebecca Holcombe, and recognized at a reception at the State House last month. Secretary Holcombe is scheduled to announce Vermont’s CTE nominees to the U.S. Presidential Scholars Program this month. Nominees will be invited to apply to the national program in February and the U.S. Presidential Scholars Program Office will announce the national scholars in May.
The ERA Program at BTC produced a live Internet stream of Stowe’s Annual Messiah Sing-in on December 21st, sponsored by The Stowe Community Church and Stowe Performing Arts. This was the 24th year of the annual concert and the first time it was recorded for broadcast. This was the second live concert event produced by ERA students this year, following a successful collaboration with RETN for the broadcast of the BHS Fall Preview Concert. Producing live concerts is a great opportunity for students in the program to gain live production skills, and fits nicely with the mission of ERA, which includes teaching students to produce a variety of electronic media programs using industry production standards.
