Fairwell to Interns

We said a formal goodbye to our fantastic UVM interns Ms. Granoff, Ms. K and Ms. N on Friday.  They are graduating shortly and wrapping up their own portfolios for their teaching licensure, although they will still be around Swift House throughout the month.  We presented them with a Swift pin, our traditional fairwell to Swifties, sharing our wish that the remember us as they "Fly Forever!"
