Saint Michael’s College’s global outlook and support of international programs was on display in the Pomerleau Alumni Center Tuesday night, Dec. 5. President Jack Neuhauser received special recognition and said a few words during the Vermont Council on World Affairs regular meeting prior to a talk by the main speaker, Ambassador Peter Galbraith. VCWA Board Member Bill Mares, in presenting a gift at the start of the meeting to Neuhauser, said: “I’d like to represent the board in thanking President Neuhauser for his personal -- and Saint. Mike’s’ institutional -- gifts to the Council over the years.”
Even at age 90, Don Sutton knows how to make an entrance. The respected founder of Saint Michael’s Fire and Rescue and former Dean of Students, fondly known to his charges as “Pappy,” rode SMFR Fire Engine No. 9 to his 90th birthday party in the Dion Center on Saturday, Dec 2, after it picked him up (with his daughter Joy) from his home by the airport not far from campus, to chauffeur them to the event in style. After his arrival on the truck with lights flashing, nearly 150 people, a majority of them SMFR alumni from the 1970s on through the present, offered the warmest of wishes and remembrances. Sutton was visibly moved and delighted.
