For Kathryn Cox of South Ryegate, it’s been a big year.
Over the course of 2013 she completed two internships with Associates in Family Health in Berlin, she finished up her associate degree at CCV in August, landed a new job as a medical assistant with Dartmouth Primary Care, and in November she passed the American Association of Medical Assistants’ Certified Medical Assistant exam.
It takes many small parts to make a whole. That was the thought behind Small Works, the current art show on display at CCV Montpelier. The show, which runs from October 4 through December 16, 2013 features the work of CCV students, staff, faculty, and alumni.
Each year former CCV staffer and current faculty member Janice Couture’s extended family gathers for dinner in Vermont. This year, CCV crashed the party.
That’s because this year the Community College of Vermont decided to say thanks to Janice and her family for years of support. At the Friday night event, roughly 80 people – 51 of who were Coutures – witnessed the official naming ceremony of the Janice Couture Community Room at CCV Winooski.

Melissa Elwell insists that being a people millionaire is one of her greatest strengths as a teacher.
“I literally called in every favor I had and said ‘I want top of the line fingerprint kits, I want top of the line laser systems, I want stringing kits so I can do blood splatters.’ That’s the people millionaire thing,” the CCV Bennington instructor said of her prep work for the forensics class she teaches. “I really believe that my students deserve everything you would get at a major university.”
And while it may be true that having lots of connections makes for great classes–Elwell has had author Archer Mayor visit class and called on judges to open up court rooms for use–in actuality there are likely other factors at play. For instance, one could say students are drawn to her classes because they feel like the real world.
