Triumph Learned More about Vermont Government
VT Senate candidate (and parent of several SACS students), Denise Smith, answered students "very sophisticated" questions about for the better part of an hour on Tuesday morning 10-18-2016. Aside from learning what Mrs. Smith would like to do if elected, the students learned about the structure of our State's governing system, some of the most pressing issues facing this county, and various Champlain Valley water challenges. Everyone felt engaged and interested in what was being asked and said.
