Poetry continued from

Poetry continued from previous page Before her reading, Gottshall explained that she remembered writing stories in elementary school and loving it. The first time she wrote a poem? “Wow, I had no idea that this was possible. It was like a song, a story, it was how I feel.” Gottshall, who teaches at Middlebury College, grew up in Michigan and has been writing since she was a small child. Even before she could read or write, she was interested in lyrics. She grew up in the 70s and her “Parents were hippies. They listened to all the great musicians, like Joanie Mitchel and Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan.” These were her earliest teachers. She believes that music and poetry are closely intertwined, starting that “Grey areas make me happy.” Before Gottshall’s reading, Norwich University student and the first Richard Schulz, Colby Military Writers’ Symposium Fellow, Jonathan Wriston, read a couple of poems from his oral history project on war. Their power was palpable in the room. “To me it feels like a way of understanding the world that is unique,” explains Gottshall, “It allows for precision. And reading poems allows one to see how others experience the world.” Prof. Prentiss also believes that “Showcasing writers is important so students can hear the words come to life, but more important is the idea of highlighting that literature is not something that was once created by special people. • • • Jonathan Wriston, the first Colby Military Writers’ Symposium Fellow, reads a poem from his oral history project. Literature is created by people just like our students.” Next year they have a great line-up of six amazing writers including biographer Joy Passanante, poet Donika Kelly, and fiction writer Robin MacArthur.

Arlington Memorial, Green Mountain Tech, and Proctor win 4th Annual Vermont Tech High School Bridge Building Competition, Middle School Competition to Follow One hundred and twenty-seven high school students from 17 schools cheered as their bridges collapsed under weight applied from the electronic crusher nicknamed “The Gordonator” during Vermont Tech Randolph Center’s fourth annual Bridge Building Competition on March 23rd. Each bridge had to adhere to specific size dimensions. Competition rules limited each team’s building materials to Popsicle sticks, tooth picks, glue, and dental floss. Bridges were judged on aesthetics and design originality, presentation, load-carrying capacity, strength-to-weight ratio and predicted failure point. Each member of the top three winning teams received scholarship money to attend the College. The Vermont Agency of Transportation and the Vermont Tech department of civil engineering provided sponsorship and engineers to judge the event.

Additionally, Mehran Assadi, National Life’s chairman, CEO, and president, was featured in a column on in which seven CEOs shared their insights into building an exceptional business. Robert Reiss, the CEO of CEO Forum, said four criteria were used in determining who to include on the “Magnificent Eight” list. He included companies that had an incredible and aligned culture; provided exceptional customer experience; have strong financials; and have a higher purpose. “Through all my research, there are few companies who have all of these elements to the degree National Life does,” Reiss said. “After my first time visiting National Life Group in 2016 and again this year I was frankly blown away by the remarkable caring and focused culture. And not just one person. Every person I met had that same passion, and actually contributes to their own cause.” National Life’s Assadi was one of about 750 CEOs that Reiss interviewed and considered for inclusion among the “Magnificent • • • Eight.” Assadi said the key to building and sustaining an exceptional business is “a clear strategy, a strong culture, a purpose-driven and performance-oriented team—resulting in exceptional execution. It all ties together: First, you dream it. If your dreams do not scare the heck out of you, then they are not big enough. Tie your dreams to a worthy cause and connect your team to the cause. Create a movement.” For the past 10 years National Life has recorded record growth in sales and earnings and is one of the fastest growing life insurance companies in the country.1 Since the founding of National Life Insurance Company in 1848, it holds true to its values to Do good. Be good. Make good. CEO Forum is rolling out the “Magnificent Eight” in a series of audio interviews and in its magazine over the next several weeks. The print edition of the magazine is being mailed this week. At National Life Group, our cause is to create positive change in people’s everyday lives. From our products and services to all the good we do in our communities, we dedicate ourselves to ensuring a better future – one person at a time.
