Andrew Kim, Hanlan Paquin, Vihit Gupta, Myles Peterson, and Luke Fitzgerald represented Fredrick H. Tuttle Middle School at the 37th Annual Vermont State Odyssey of the Mind (OM). The team won both the spontaneous task and the long-term problem in the Aesop Gone Viral, Division II competition. The team started at Orchard School and has been together for four years. According to their coach Paul Fitzgerald, “In the long-term problem, Andrew Kim sang beautifully. Hanlan Paquin choreographed an original dance and crafted costumes for the team. Vihit Gupta’s comedic timing induced hysterics. Luke Fitzgerald and Myles Peterson embraced characters taken straight from the headlines with impersonations that were immediately recognized with bursts of laughter. Luke also wrote an original song that was performed on a PVC instrument that supported the back-drop.”
