The Board named Mr. Farr to the position and empowered Chairman, Bob Flint, to negotiate a contract with him.

"Scott lives and breathes the River Valley Technical Center (RVTC).

In addition to his Assistant Director position, Mr. Farr has served as the Adult Services Coordinator at RVTC for three years as the junior varsity basketball coach for Springfield High School for three years. He serves on the Board of Directors for Crown Point Country Club, is a member of the Springfield Rotary, is chair of the Springfield High School and Howard Dean Education Center Crisis Team, and has served on the Springfield Chamber of Commerce Board.

Pre-Tech Students Participate in Fundraiser
Business & Financial Services Host Silent Auction
The Silent Auction was a tremendous success! We had approximately 50 donations from local area businesses, and experienced a solid turn out from auction-goers on Thursday. Students raised nearly $1,250.00 that will go directly towards the costs associated with attending and competing at the Vermont DECA Career & Development Conference that will be held in February in South Burlington. If students are successful at the state conference, they will qualify for the International Career & Development Conference in Orlando, Florida. Again, funds raised from the Silent Auction will help offset some of costs to attend.
