UVM Names Local Green & Gold Scholars

BURLINGTON – The University of Vermont named the following graduating high school seniors among this year’s Green & Gold scholarship recipients: Wyatt Searles of Cabot, Rebekah Cloutier of Hardwick and Cara Richardson of Plainfield.

The Green & Gold Scholarship is built on the generosity of the late Genevieve Patrick. Part of her $9 million bequest, realized in 2000, created the foundation for the scholarship. More than 400 Vermonters have since earned their UVM degrees on the strength of this support, many of them graduating to careers in their home state. By June each year, principals in eligible high schools nominate the Vermont student who has achieved the highest academic distinction at the end of junior year, based on the student’s ninth through eleventh grade record. To receive the Green & Gold Scholars Award, selected students must be a competitive applicant, meet or exceed minimum entrance requirements to the University and for the selected academic program, apply for admission by January 15 of their senior year, and must choose to attend UVM by May 1 of the semester prior to enrollment.
