At the end of March, the Vermont State Colleges System Board of Trustees appointed Patricia Moulton President of Vermont Technical College. She had been the college’s interim president since September and immediately began her tenure as president when the trustees made the announcement. Moulton is the first woman to lead the college in its 150-year history. Moulton previously served in state government, most recently as Secretary of the Agency of Commerce and Community Development . She says she felt this was the perfect next step in her career.
