We are often very proud of our students’ accomplishments, both present students, and past students. Whether it be success on a hunt, a sports accomplishment, or academic achievement, our ITS youth have always given us much to be proud of. Past student George Neptune has given us many things to celebrate. George graduated from ITS, then Gould Academy High School. He then attended and graduated from Dartmouth College, and became the Museum Educator at the Abbe Museum in Bar Harbor. Just this past week, George traveled to Cape Town, South Africa as part of a youth delegation to attend the Global Youth Indaba: Leading by Example Conference. George is one of 23 young people nominated to attend the World Summit to meet with other youth delegations from around the world. George is the first Native American nominated to attend the summit. We always knew great things were in store for George, and this just goes to prove it. Kuli pomiyan, George (travel well). We look forward to hearing all about your trip when you return.
