Last week, Vermont Technical College's Board of Trustees appointed Patricia Moulton as interim president. Moulton currently serves as the Secretary for the Agency of Commerce and Community Development for the State of Vermont.
Moulton will take over the role as Dan Smith, VTC's current President, transitions into his new role as the President and CEO of The Vermont Community Foundation.
She is the first female to lead Vermont Tech in its 150 year history and joins two other women on the five member Vermont State College's Council of Presidents. The other women include
Joyce Judy of Community College of VT and Elaine C. Collins of Johnson State College.
Sachs is extremely dedicated to social justice and gender equity. She leads CTS's Business Peer Exchange, a group of employers dedicated to sharing resources and practices to increase gender diversity in their workplaces.
"We are all interested in gender equity at the workplace...it's really important to me that the workplace is fair and respectful," says Sachs.
We have tremendous gratitude for your leadership, Beth!
Rosie's Girls build Rube Goldberg machine to learn problem- solving & connect to their inner designers and engineers.

Like Bess O'Brien's other award-winning documentaries (most recently, The Hungry Heart about opiate addiction in Vermont), All of Me focuses on the lives of women, girls and boys who are caught in the downward spiral of eating disorders and their struggle to regain a sense of self-compassion and healing. The film will focus on body image, a lack of connection with one's physical and emotional being and the need to delve deep within one's self to find the systemic reasons that triggered this disease.
So many of us have been affected by eating disorders, either directly or indirectly yet it is a topic that continues to elicit shame and secrecy. All of Me sheds a compassionate and intelligent light on how we perceive this difficult and often misunderstood disease.
Tickets for this event are $25 per person. A reception begins at 5 pm and the film will be shown at 6 pm. Following the screening, Bess O'Brien and some of the cast members will be on hand for a Q&A.
This event is a fundraiser for Kingdom County Productions and the Vermont Women's Fund. Tickets will be on sale soon. For more information, see vermontwomensfund.org.
