In conjunction with the American Graduate initiative, Vermont PBS produced these profiles of some Vermont Champions – Vermont students and educators who are making a difference. The profiles are airing on Vermont PBS throughout the month of September. The September 27 broadcast is intended to engage the country around the dropout crisis with special celebrity guests, relevant spokespeople and compelling stories from the students themselves.

CELEBRATING THE PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE
Sunday, September 28, 2014 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
Join us for a family friendly, fall day celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act – the landmark environmental law that designated wilderness areas for all to enjoy. Today, America boasts 758 wilderness areas covering nearly 110 million acres. The Forest Service manages nearly 100,000 acres of wilderness here in Vermont. This free, public event is part of a national celebration of the Wilderness Act and honors Vermont’s tradition of conservation and partnerships.
