Middlebury College welcomed an influx of new students this February, students affectionately termed ‘Febs.’ As part of the welcoming process, there was an activity fair on campus one Friday which DREAM mentees and mentors attended to try and recruit new mentors for the program. Who can resist a cute kid asking you to play with them? Thank you for your ongoing support of DREAM. If you would like additional or more detailed information, please contact me by email or by phone. •
