VT Lieutenant Governor Phil Scott to Speak at LSC
VT. LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR AT LSC ON 9/11
September 5, 2013
Phil Scott will visit Lyndon State College on Wednesday, September 11, to speak at LSC's annual 9/11 remembrance service. Scott will take part in a question and answer "open session" before the service. The open session will be moderated by LSC student Marc Brunco, president of the College's Model United Nations Club.
The open session will run from noon to 12:30 p.m.; the remembrance service will follow at 12:30 p.m. and last about thirty minutes. Both events will be held in the Vail Student Center and are free and open to the community.
In addition to Scott's message, LSC Provost and Academic Dean Kellie Bean will offer welcoming remarks, Professor Elizabeth Norris will conduct the moment of silence and tolling of the bell, and the national anthem will be led by Music and Performing Arts Instructor Britt Moore.
Since 2009, September 11 has been a federally recognized National Day of Service and Remembrance as an annual and forward-looking tribute to the 9/11 victims, survivors, and those who rose up in service in response to the attacks.
Phil Scott was born in Barre and is a graduate of Spaulding High School and the University of Vermont. He was elected Vermont's 79th Lieutenant Governor in 2010. Scott launched a "Vermont Everyday Jobs" initiative, where he works a few hours in other people's shoes. Since 2011, he has worked at 25 organizations around the state, from manufacturing to beekeeping to teaching second grade.
Outside of the State House, Scott is the co-owner of DuBois Construction in Middlesex, and he is the country's only Lieutenant Governor who is also a stock car driver. He holds the record for the most career wins in the Late Model division at Thunder Road Speedbowl.
