Wilmington Whiteface 100K this Sunday WILMINGTON „ Hundreds of cyclists will hit the roads, back country roads and trails during the Sunday, June 16, Wilmington Whiteface 100k (WW100) mountain bike race. Cyclists from throughout the northeastern United States and Canada hope that this event will qualify them for one of 70 to 100 spots in the prestigious Leadville 100 (LT100). The 69-mile race both begins and ends at Whiteface Moun-

tain, in Wilmington. But in between the grueling race will take the fields through some of the regionÍ s most challenging cycling terrain that include twisting jeep and gravel roads, back country trails and demanding hill climbs that measure more than 750 meters each. From the Olympic mountain, which was the site for the 1980 Olympic Winter Games’ alpine events, and known for having the greatest vertical east of the

Rockies, the out and back race will take the cyclists to Route 86, the Fox Farm Road, Springfield Road, Hardy Road, Bartlett Road, Lacy Road and Limkiln Road before reaching Route 9N. From 9N, the race’s most demanding and technical terrain and climbs await the field, as they peddle through Styles Brook Road and the Jay Mountain Road ahead of Carlott Road and Blood Hill Road. From there, the field makes its way

to Roscoe Road, Bronson Lane, Blueberry Hill and out to Lord Road before returning to the Flume Trails and Whiteface Mountain. Once at Whiteface, two, threemile finishing loops and a pair of 350-foot climbs await ahead of the finish line. Aid stations will be located approximately every 20km along the course (20km, 40km, 60km, 80km, finish). Each aid station will be stocked with Gu Energy Gels, Gu Chomps, Water, Electrolyte drink, fruit, and light snacks. The race’s top-three WW100 finishers in each division will be awarded spots to the LT100, while the remaining spots will be distributed based on performance and a lottery system. Racers who do come away with qualifications will have the opportunity to race in either this year’s LT100 or next year’s. Cyclists who may not be ready for the full WW100 can also compete in the newly added 50K event. Added to this year’s race, organizers hope that the 31mile long race will attract more racers, who might someday race in the full 100K. Additionally, the organizers are offering a newly established TEAM class which will consist of two-member teams each riding the 50k course. Both the 100k and 50k races are a part of the June 13-16 fourth annual Wilmington Whiteface Bike Fest. The bikefest is designed to promote and showcase cycling opportunities in and around Wilmington.

Essex County workers fight cancer through rain drops

Sharon Garvey speaks to those attending the Cancer Awareness Walk at the Essex County offices June 7. Photo by Keith Lobdell ELIZABETHTOWN „ There were no rainy day blues, but there was plenty of purple making its way through the soaked streets of Elizabethtown June 7. A number of people showed up to attend the Essex County Public Health Department’s cancer awareness walk that day, hosting two walks around town as well as food and information on healthy living. “We appreciate everyone that was able to come out on this rainy day,” Lisa French of the department said. “There are a lot of people that put a lot of time and effort into this

only two of the five surviving. “I have been through it as a patient and a caregiver, and it is a lot worse to find out a family member had cancer then when they told me that I had it,” she said. “Cancer is like this weather; it is unpredictable. It is not in your life’s plan.” Garvey added that events like this to raise funds for cancer treatment and research have helped many like her. “There is so much out there with the technology and all of the testing that they can do today,” she said.

s your pet up to date on his vaccinations? The arrival of warmer weather means our furry friends are likely spending more time outdoors. It’s essential that your pet is vaccinated against common feline or canine diseases, as well as rabies. Of all vaccinations, the rabies vaccination is most critical, as rabies is fatal to both humans and animals. If you can’t afford a trip to your local veterinarian, contact the NCSPCA or check your local paper for information about free rabies clinics in your area. There is no time like today to check your pet’s vaccination history and be sure those shots are up to date. You’ll be glad you did! Our featured pet this week is Elvis, a gorgeous black Labrador Retriever-mix whose personality lives up to his famous name. Elvis is an exuberant, outgoing fellow, whose tail never seems to stop wagging. He is a short, stocky guy who is about six years old. Elvis loves his walks and really looks forward to mealtimes - maybe a little too much, if that pudge is any indicator! Elvis seems to get along fine with other dogs and ignores cats. We believe he would blend well into any household. If you need some joy in your life come meet Elvis - we bet

he Goff Brothers of Plattsburgh will present a benefit concert this Friday evening, June 14, at the Essex Community Church. The four brothers range in age from 12 to 18 and will play classical music on cello, piano and violin. These young men, who have played in the church’s concert series before, are the grandsons of Essex’s Norma Goff. They offered to play a benefit for the concert series after learning of the loss of the series’ former supporting grants. The program begins at 7 p.m. and tickets are $10, with students admitted for free. ItÍ s time to start thinking about entering a float in this year’s Fourth of July parade. It doesn’t have to be an actual float, in that you could dress up like a portrait painter and march along representing the Adirondack Art Association, or you could demonstrate your ability to juggle and ride a unicycle at the same time. I’ve seen both. Of course real floats are welcome to join the fire trucks and bagpipe band already scheduled to appear.



ime to start thinking about our upcoming Independence Day celebrations, which will take place this year on Saturday, July 6. I’ll give a reminder as the date draws closer, but groups and individuals should get going on floats and vehicles for the parade, and artists and crafters should make plans for showing their wares. All interested parties can contact Sheila Borden at 962-8360 or 962-8909. The main events are the parade, which starts from the Fairgrounds at 5 p.m. (preceded by the Dog Agility Show on the Library Lawn at 4 p.m.), and then the Fire Department Pig Roast, the Street Dance with Gary Phinney at 7 p.m., and finally the famous Fireworks Show down by the lake at dusk. Penelope the Clown, a Hula Hoop Contest, and popcorn and soda will be found along with the Library Book Sale on the Library Lawn, and the Christopher Emmet Hallowell Fund will hold its annual Ice Cream Social and Magic Show in Ballard Park. The parade and the pig roast will be bigger than ever, with numerous prizes and awards given for outstanding parade entrants. Donation flyers will soon be mailed for the Fireworks Fund,

Rob Ivy •

There are also a couple of dignitaries looking for parade conveyances. They should be dignified vehicles, preferably of the convertible sort, but don’t need to reach the level of the Pope-mobile. While a Duesenberg would look great, it turns out the stop and go of parades causes overheating in older cars, but if you’d like to lend your late-model Rolls or sedan chair with 8 husky bearers, please let me know. The Fourth is a Thursday this year, and the fireworks display at Begg’s Point will be on Friday evening, July 5. Call either 9637072 or 963-4060 if you’d like to enter a float. A second art gallery is preparing to open in downtown Essex. It will be in the small shop next to the current AAA gallery in the old stone firehouse. Art galleries prosper when you have a number of them in one place, in that more buyers will be attracted to the wider range of offerings. With the relatively large number of eateries in town (art lovers generally are food lovers) here’s hoping we have a great summer in Essex.

The student project has captured the memories of Erwin Barber, Evelyn Brant and Phil Knowles as they highlight remembrances of life and their families in Westport during their lifetime, with the help of Colin Wells as interviewer. The students videoed, scanned photos and pieced together DVDs to be used at the Visitor and Community Center as introductions of life in Westport “Through The Years, Through Their Eyes.” The event is free to the public.

The passing of the Greatest Generation


n the amount of time it took to brush your teeth this morning a World War II veteran passed away from old age. Now well into their 80s and 90s, the men and women who fought and won the Great Conflict are dying at the rate of more than 800 a day. That’s approximately one every two minutes. At one time, there were more than 15 million WWII veterans in the United States. That number has now dwindled to a little more than a million and the median age of a World War II vet is now 92. It is estimated by the US Veterans Administration that by 2036, there will be no living WWII veterans left to tell their stories of the sights, sounds, victories and horrors of the deadliest war in world history. Regrettably, many will also never get the opportunity to personally view the National World War II Memorial in Washington D.C. that was dedicated in 2004 to the men and women who fought and died in World War II. That is why the work being done by North Country Honor Flight should be recognized and lauded. An arm of the national not-for-profit Honor Flight Network, the group was formed in March 2012 by Keeseville resident Danny Kaifetz with the goal of flying North Country WWII veterans to see the War II Memorial in Washington D.C. The premise is simple. Many WWII vets do not have the finances or physical wherewithal to make the trip to D.C. In many cases, friends and family also lack the resources and time to complete the three-to four-day trip by vehicle to the nation’s capital. With that in mind, North Country Honor Flight offers free transportation and airfare to and from the memorial. Accompanying the veterans are guardians who assist with the trip and the bus transporting them to Albany airport is flanked by veteran groups like the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association, the Patriot Guard and the Legion Riders. While in Albany, they are joined by other Honor Flight groups and treated to a heroes send-off, including crowds cheering and waving, a performance by a military band and speeches from dignitaries. Signs held up by the crowd read: ”God bless WWII vets,” and “One last mission.” Then, the veterans board a plane for their all-expense-paid trip to the memorial in Washington D.C. For many it is their one and only chance to witness the tribute that was erected in their honor. Dozens of veterans from throughout the

circulation area of Denton Publications have already taken advantage of the chance to see the memorial. A group flew out May 18 and another this past Saturday, June 8. All say they relished the opportunity. In a letter to the editor, WWII veteran Robert Savarie of Olmstedville said it was an incredibly emotional experience. “(It) was an emotional experience as memories of D-Day, Anzio, Battle of the Bulge, Midway, Guadalcanal, Okinawa and so many other battlefields were brought to mind,” he said. Other veterans like William H. Thompson of Willsboro, Alfred Kurtz of Elizabethtown and Ralph Filion of Plattsburgh all said they were honored by the gesture made by North Country Honor Flight and the outpouring of support they received from members of the community. Family members that accompanied the veterans had similar sentiments. Filion’s daughter, Michelle Filion-Schon, drove to Plattsburgh from Pottstown, Pa., to join her father on the flight. “I think this could very well be the best day of both of our lives,” Filion-Schon said. “I’m so blessed to be there with him when he sees the memorial for the first time. This is the first time he’s ever been appreciated as a veteran.” Let’s hope it won’t be his last. Approximately 16 million men and women served in the U.S. military during WWII. By the time WWII ended in 1945, Nearly 420,000 United States soldiers lost their lives „ another 670,000 were wounded. In the eight years it has been in existence, the national Honor Flight Network has transported more than 98,500 WWII veterans to Washington, D.C. to see their memorial. The program has 121 hubs in 41 states, including the North Country Honor Flight based in Keeseville. The argument can certainly be made that no other war in our nation’s history was as influential in keeping our country, values and way of life intact as the Great Conflict. We owe an immeasurable amount of gratitude to the men and women who fought in WWII to keep this nation free for this generation and more importantly for future generations. But saying so is just lip service. The people who volunteer their time to organizations like North Country Honor Flight are walking the walk.

Over 150 people attended the late afternoon festivities which concluded a busy National Trails Day.

The day began with the IronOre Challenge at Cheney Mountain Trail hosted by the Moriah Chamber of Commerce and CATS. Then during a 1 p.m. hike, we unveiled the beautiful new interpretive signs at Black Kettle Nature Trail illustrated by Sheri Amsel and funded by a grant from the J.C. Kellogg Foundation.

Therapy dogs praised To the Valley News: I am writing to praise an outstanding program at Westport Central School. That is, the Therapy Dog Program, run by enrichment teacher Susan Satloff. Each year, for the past three years, Ms. Satloff has trained students in safe dog handling and care for six months,

then brings the students and dogs to various sites in the North Country, such as the Horace Nye nursing home, for therapeutic interactions with the residents. This is a wonderful opportunity for the students to learn responsibility, patience, and the rewards of community VHUY LF H ( Y HU\ RQ HLV D Z LQ Q HU W KHVW X dents learn how to properly care for and train a dog, and the recipients of the therapy encounters are overjoyed with the visits – not only from being able to pet and love a well-behaved dog, but also by seeing these children in an endeavor that they can share with the community in a unique way. The Westport school mission statement: “To inspire our students to be caring and contributing members of society,” is embodied in Ms. Satloff’s class like no other. It is the only program of its kind in any school in all of New York and New England! This hands-on learning of responsibility and compassion is something these children will take into their adult lives, and one which will not only establish how they care for pets as adults, but also their own children. In past years the students and therapy dogs have visited nursing homes and hospitals in Plattsburgh, Elizabethtown, Keene Valley and Ticonderoga. They also have visited three other schools teaching dog safety programs to 6-9 year-olds. What an inspired and visionary choice it was on the part of the Westport school board to enable Ms. Satloff to deliver this class. I can’t think of a more valuable way to invest school budget money, as does Senator Elizabeth Little. She has sent Ms. Satloff a personal letter commending the program and a certificate of merit to each student. Andrea J Sorey, Elizabethtown

Car show

continued from page 1 proceeds for the event benefited the Adirondack History Center Museum and its future endeavors. Located at the back of the museum, off of Hand Avenue under the pavilion, Linnea Shumway and Cynthia Johnston of DaCY Meadow Farm served lunch and attendees could also enter a drawing for a $100 gas card among other things. The aroma of a selection of foods wafted through the outdoor event as people wandered around indulging in conversation, taking in the sight of historic and antique cars, and meandering into the museum for the free Civil War exhibit. The car show was stretched between the museum and the pavilion, creating a festival-like atmosphere that encouraged car enthusiasts to also take part in exploring the museum’s free event as they made their way towards the museum. The event had appeal for all walks of people — cars, food, fun - and the museum provided a chance for the community to engage in some local history that was a part of national history. Among the artifacts, letters, and photographs of the Civil War veterans of Essex County, there was even well-preserved clothing, and a dress worn by Sarah Kellogg Livingston to LincolnÍ s Inaugural Ball. Not only did the event provide a chance for classic car enthusiasts to share their love of cars, but it provided a walk through history in two aspects—the timeless appeal of historic cars and the local contribution of Essex County to the Civil War—tied together in this one event.

The Antique and Classic Car Show was also the grand opening of the Adirondack History Museum’s newest exhibit about the Civil War.

athers play a special role in the lives of children. There is some evidence that Father’s Day has been celebrated for thousands of years before the official Presidential designation of Father’s Day by President Nixon in 1972. A young Babylonian boy named Elmusu carved a message on a clay tablet wishing his father a peaceful and enjoyable life. While the discovery of the tablet suggests that there may have been thankful expressions expressed to fathers by their children, the creation of an official day honoring fathers was long in the making. In America, it is thought the first Father’s Day celebration may have occurred in West Virginia in 1908 where a sermon delivered By Scot Hurlburt by Dr. Robert Webb extoled the virtues of fatherhood. Sonora Smart Dodd is thought to have been the catalyst behind the creation of Father’s Day. Her mother had died at the birth of her sixth child and Mrs. Dodd’s father, Henry Smart; a decorated Civil War soldier had acted the role of mother and father in her life. Mrs. Dodd felt that he had given so much to his children that he should be honored for that commitment and along so many other deserving fathers. Some would argue that mothers are the most important parent in the household. After all, mothers get more telephone calls on mother’s day than fathers do on Father’s day. Fathers get more collect calls for Father’s Day than mothers do. As a father I am often called to fix something or look at something or to listen to the strange noise coming out of the car. Fathers like mothers approach parenting as differently as the stars in the sky. I do believe that there are some fundamental things that men can do to be a good father. Good fathers love their children’s mother and treat her accordingly. This one thing maybe the thing or the most important thing. Love your children without qualification. Love them even if they are not the best student, best athlete or best whatever. As a Dad, you must be grown up yourself; Dads must be adults not pals or friends with their kids while they are younger. Time, giving the best you can of your time as often as you can will help your children to be happy and well adjusted. Children need structure and discipline, not yelling screaming or hitting. Discipline is about teaching and learning and relationship building. Stress learning and education whatever your child decides to do education will help them to succeed. Raise your children to become independent and confident so that they can make their own way in the world and not dependent on you. Teach them that life is short and terribly valuable. Idling away in front of a television or video game falls drastically short of realizing the brevity of this life. Finally, fathers tend to be the mistake makers in families. Therefore they are the best teachers of forgiveness and accountability. Teach your children to be accountable for what they do wrong and right. Imbedded in this learning is the knowledge that we must also forgive ourselves for the mistakes that we make and we all make them. It has been a great source of satisfaction and joy to be someone’s father and I feel privileged to have had this opportunity. I also know that fathers that are not always our biological fathers. Sometimes we are fathered by men around us, Uncles, Grandfathers, neighbors, teachers, brothers, and coaches’ employers and yes, even our friends. These men who have helped to shape us and care for us have also been fathers to us. On this Father’s Day don’t forget the men who have fathered you though they may not always show it, they love you and care for you very much in their own way. Remember, all kids count.

now making sure that police are asking those in custody if they have ever served and if they are veterans.” Meyer said that the Essex County Veterans Court would offer some assistance in areas other than the traditional matters that come up through the criminal court system. “Our Veterans Court is not going to be limited solely to criminal cases, but also to work on domestic issues and family court cases,” Meyer said. “We want to cast as wide a net for as many veterans as possible and their families. It is a wide net that we are trying to cast and it is a little unprecedented in the state, but we are trying to help as many people as we can.” Meyer said that on the criminal side, offenders would be able to participate in addiction or mental health programs as an alternative to jail time under the discretion of the court. “If there is a misdemeanor charge and you go to Veterans Court, you have the possibility to have the charge vacated if you complete the Veterans Court program,” Meyer said. “We can provide a whole array of support and services through this team. It will operate the same way as the drug court, but it will be just for veterans.” Meyer said that while some may enter the court, “just to try and get out of jail,” they will leave seeing the true benefits of the program. “Once they get into the program and see the benefits, (just getting out of jail) is not the important part to them anymore,” he said. “They see the benefits that it has made in the eyes of them and their family, and that becomes the success for them.” Meyer said that the court is still being formed and that the biggest need is veteran volunteers. “We are still in the formation process, and we are trying to get together the mentors,” he said. “That is a key part of the Veterans Court, to get veterans who are not in trouble to come in and help those in need of the services.”

Westport science class releases fish By Katherine Clark WESTPORT „ The school day went to the fishes when the seventh grade class at Westport Central School released almost 70 salmon minnows into the Boquet River on May 21 at Lee Park. The students started taking care of the fish eggs when they were delivered to the class-

room after the students returned from Christmas break. Erica LoherÍ s seventh grade living science class has been raising and releasing salmon minnows for years at WCS and this year the students carried on the tradition of taking care of the fish from eggs to their release in the river. The salmon eggs came frozen from the Lake Clear Fish Hatchery. Once they arrived the students put the eggs into water and waited for the shells to thin and the fishes to emerge. “We had to keep the water clean and make sure they had enough food,” said student Abby Mero. At the park, students took the minnows, one by one, to the river and released them into the non-moving waters. “It was a lot of fun,” said Mero.

By Keith Lobdell WILLSBORO — A pop star’s life is spent on the road. To help their students get a small taste of that life, Willsboro Central School gave members of its Academy Chorus a day in the life of a touring musician, as students in grades 4-6 (along with third grade drummer Anna McShane) headed out on the road June 6 for a three-stop, county-encompassing tour that included Westport Central School, the Keeseville Knights of Columbus and the Horace Nye Nursing Home. “The students wanted to do a concert of popular music, and we wanted to work out a way to also turn it into an educational experience,” Willsboro music teacher Jennifer Moore said. “We wanted to give them a sense of the work that is involved in the life of being a pop musician and the time spent on the road and sharing their music.” At the three stops, the students sang popular hits such as “We are Young” (Fun), “Fireflies” (Owl City), “Good Girl” (Carrie Underwood), “Eye of the Tiger” (Survivor), and “Cups (When I’m Gone)” (Anna Kendrick). Throughout, the chorus was accompanied by Moore and their drummer, McShane, who has been playing for

just three months leading up to the shows. “It is pretty cool to be with them as a third grader,” McShane said. “My favorite song to perform is ‘We Are Young.’ ‘Good Girl,’ is a little complicated, and I do mess up sometimes, but I am able to get back on the beat and do better after.” The singers also enjoyed their day on the road. “It feels great — this is my first tour,” fourth grader Stephen Liebeck said. “Just to be here and getting to do this is an honor.” “It was definitely an amazing experience,” sixth grader Jared Joslyn said. “It was a pleasure to sing to all of the groups, I just do not know how to explain it.” “It was awesome to be singing to all of these people,” fifth grader Adam Gay said. “It was just a wonderful experience,” sixth grader Olivia Politi said. “I love to sing with my friends and when I get older, I want to go to Broadway and do this.” Moore said that she felt the students learned the values they were trying to teach them through the experience. “I think that they do appreciate the value of the preparation that is needed to do something like this and the reward of the performance,” she said. “I think that we are all going to sleep well after this.”

ESSEX — College For Every Student (CFES) has received a gift from Lawson and Clint Allen, longtime seasonal residents of Essex, and has named the boardroom in its new national headquarters in honor of the Allens. In January, CFES moved its national headquarters to the 6,000 square foot building at 2303 Main Street in Essex. The second floor of the building—where the Lawson and Clint Allen Boardroom is located„ houses the organization’s offices and dayto-day operations. The CFES Center, in the back of the building, provides state-of-the-art meeting space for trainings and gatherings. “Lawson and Clint’s contribution to the CFES Building Fund enables CFES to strengthen its position as America’s preeminent nonprofit dedicated to helping underserved students get to and through college,” said Rick Dalton, president and CEO of College For Every Student. “We’re so fortunate to have residents in the North Country who are so caring and generous, and we owe our deepest gratitude to the Allens,” Active in philanthropy, Lawson and Clint Allen, have a long history of supporting education. They have endowed two full scholarships at Harvard University (Allen Scholars), a

scholarship to Cardinal Spellman High School, where Clint was a student, and recently they established an annual four-year scholarship to a graduating high school senior who resides in Essex. The couple recently gave a major gift to the Massachusetts General Hospital, where Clint Allen serves on the board. In addition to joining the CFES board,

Lawson also serves on the board of Posse, a leadership access program to top tier colleges. “We cannot think of anything more important in today’s world than the education of kids. When you empower young people, you empower the future,” said Allen. “We are proud and privileged to support CFES and the great work that they are doing,”

Champlain Valley K-9 visits John Brown Farm

By Keith Lobdell LAKE PLACID — If you get lost in the woods of the John Brown Farm, the best thing to do is find the closest tree and hug it. That is what members of the Champlain Valley K-9 Search and Rescue Unit told those who visited the state park Saturday, June 8, as part of its Hug-A-Tree education program. “I thought that it was a good idea to bring them in and give kids an idea of what to do in the woods in case they get lost,” John Brown Farm Site Manager Brendan Mills said. “It is nice to have the dogs here and to show people what they are able to do.” “Shannon Bressett of Keeseville works with a pair of K-9 Shannon Bressett and Ruby of the Champlain Valley K-9 Search and Rescue Unit say hello to visitors at the partners, Oakland and Ruby, John Brown Farm, where they were promoting the Hug-A-Tree program.

Speedy Arnold receives People’s Choice Award at ACW literary event By Keith Lobdell KEESEVILLE — George “Speedy” Arnold was surprised to hear his name called. Surrounded by family and friends that made the trip with him to the Adirondack Center for WritingÍ s (ACWÍ s) annual Adirondack Literary Awards June 2, he knew there were a lot of good books that had been entered into the competition. Among them was his, “What’s an Elephant Doing in the Ausable River?” Arnold wrote and illustrated the book. “My publisher said that I should go,” Arnold said. “What made it nice was that my son, daughter-in-law, wife, sister and some friends came with us. I saw all the books that were nominated and my thought was well, at least it was nice to be nominated with them.” Not expecting to hear his name called, Arnold said he was completely surprised when it was as the winner of the People’s Choice Award, selected by ACW members and attendees. “It was a pretty amazing thing,” he said.

“This was not just a fantasy book for kids but a story about the Ausable River. It talks about places on the river and the historic bridges that you see here.” The 60-page hardcover book, with more than 130 full-color illustrations and published by Bloated Toe Publishing, takes a young boy and his dog on an adventure along the Ausable River in Keeseville. Arnold will be appearing at the Plattsburgh Farmers & Crafters Market on Durkee Street June 15 and 29 and the Keeseville Farmers’ Market in downtown Keeseville on June 19. The book can be purchased at the author’s business, ArnoldÍ s Grocery and Likker Lokker in Keeseville, 182 Pleasant St.( Rte. 9N). The book can be purchased online through’s North Country Store books ( elephant-ausable-river.html). The Bloated Toe website also lists other area stores where the book is available.

Top district students feted in ceremony at Willsboro CS By Katherine Clark WILLSBORO „ Students from seven school districts across Essex County were recognized for their scholastic achievements at a special ceremony at Willsboro Central School on June 4. The Eighth Annual Excellence in Academic Achievement Recognition Ceremony honored 47 students from Elizabethtown-Lewis, Keene, Moriah, School Lake, Ticonderoga, Westport and Willsboro Central School Students. The recognition ceremony honored students who are in the top 10 percent of their class and maintained a grade point average of 90 or above throughout their high school careers with a metal and certificate of recognition. Students heard from North Country Community College President Steve Tyrell about the importance of college readiness. “What’s the difference from high school to college readiness,” Tyrell asked the audience. “The difference he said is in high school there are many people there to hold the student accountable, but warns that in college students need to hold themselves accountable.” Another factor Tyrell highlighted was the importance of learning from mentors or those who are successful. “Anyone who is successful in life will tell you about someone who had touched their lives in certain ways that ensured they were thinking about things in a way that would help them be successful,” said Tyrell. “I’ve been fortunate to have had plenty of mentors in my life, some have been supervisors, some instructors, these factors are critical to success later in life.” Tyrell said as a college president he sees how there are not just one way for students to learn. He said in high school there is a heavy emphasis on memorizing information in order to succeed but in college and in life synthesizing and understanding what is being learned is critical to being successful. “All of you are being recognized for being in the top 10 percent of your class, you already have what it takes, you need to focus on passion of learning and then focus on the grades,” said Tyrell.
