Over 450 talented Vermont students graduated from the Governor’s Institutes of Vermont (GIV) this summer, with 18 of them hailing from South Burlington High School (SBHS). GIV hosts intensive, hands-on learning experiences for young people on college campuses throughout Vermont. These programs provide the opportunity for students to dig into a topic they are passionate about, experience life on a college campus, and make new friends from all over the state. Eleven Institutes were held this summer on topics ranging from engineering and entrepreneurship to Asian cultures and the mathematical sciences. The graduates from SBHS include Sebastien Bolh, Nate Marti, Leah Mason, Nisha Shah, Henry Van Fleteren, and Katrina Willette Carroll in the Information Technology and Digital Media Institute; Aly Brady in the Architecture, Design and Building Institute; Ethan Brooks, Victoria Chang, Ananth Malladi, Ragulan Sivakumar, Anthony Stem, and Kailey Yang in the Mathematical Sciences Institute; Audrey Clay-Streib and Lizzie Cornett in the Astronomy Institute; Sean Carlson in the Entrepreneurship Institute; and Ethan Klesch and Vishnu Muthuswamy in the Engineering Institute.
