2016-17: Week 33

A Solon Salute to Khylear Imbeau. Khylear challenged herself to take VTVLC's (Vermont Virtual Learning Cooperative) online Marine Biology course in the spring of 2016, which includes a hybrid of online and face-to-face learning, as well as an experiential, research trip to Bermuda! Her interest and passion further fueled, Khylear has spent this academic year continuing to investigate marine biology with a year-long online Marine Science course and will return to Bermuda this summer as a student leader and independent study student. For pushing her boundaries, pursuing her evolving passions, and having the courage and self-advocacy to personalize her path through MHS, we salute you, Khylear! ​(From Flexible Pathways Advisor Steph DiLena).
