SUMMIT IMPACT: Our student volunteers working the Farmer Summit on campus last week really impressed Donald Grandmaison, a manager with lēf Farms, a hydroponically grown salad greens company in New Hampshire known for its fresh, tasty produce. Reflecting on the Summit, he wrote: 

“My aha moment was talking with volunteer Lucy Almberg ’21. Farming has this incredible ability to draw us in and open our eyes to the power of community and service. Our generation is starved for this selflessness and purpose, so I was struck by the spirit of your student volunteers. The Farm has given them a canvas for which to paint, and nothing is more fruitful than a creative mind.” 
 
ROOKIE REPORTER: Congrats to former Summit editor Aimee Chiavaroli ’16 on being named the 2017 New England Rookie of the Year for daily newspapers by the New England Newspaper and Press Association. A New Bedford Standard-Times reporter, Chiavaroli received the award on Saturday at the New England Newspaper Convention Journalism Awards event in Boston.
