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.

The former secretary of the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development has been appointed president of Vermont Technical College.

The Vermont State Colleges board of trustees is not going to change the name of the system after one of the five institutions became a university.

Officials at Vermont Technical College say an unofficial all-school competition and a grant from IBM helped reduce the school's electric bill by more than $40,000 in one year.

IBM also worked with the Howard Center, Vermont's largest health and human services organization, to help community members understand and establish procedures for managing the use, cost and conservation of energy.
