Green Mountain prides itself in being a tight-knit community where we all support each other and can rely on our community members (whether they be students, residents of Poultney, or faculty) to vote for us in contests. At this moment we are lucky enough to have our very own Bethany Everett (Community Director) as a semi-finalist in the RedBook Real Women Style Awards! The top 10 will be promoted in the newest edition of the magazine, which would do wonders for both Bethany as an personal style blogger and the school as it promotes one of the faces of our Residence Life department.
To show the online community what a cool and supportive collection of students and faculty we are at Green Mountain, lets give it all we got. I mean what is more fulfulling than catapulting one of our very own to the top of the personal style awards so we can show the world not only are we one of the most green colleges in the country, but we also got style and one heck of an awesome community. After all, just like the most important part of the holidays is to be with family; the most important part of community is to show your support for one another anyway possible (especially by shamlessly voting and deleting cookies to vote again...)
Here's the link to vote:
There are good causes to get behind in this world and then there are great causes to get behind. Now I'm not saying that this is the greatest cause you could support, but it does show tremendous support for Bethany as a friend and for the school as a whole. As community members nobody should be afraid to share their causes and lobby for votes. Students at Green Mountain lobby for tons of causes every year ranging from St. Baldricks, to the Humane Society, to allowing take-out boxes at Chartwells. All causes here seem to be noble ones, so if you or someone you know have good causes at GMC please do everything you can to share them and gain as much support as possible. What it boils down to, is we as a community want to help one another in any way, whenever we can becasue WE ARE GREEN MOUNTAIN!
