Spooner, 78, has lived his whole life in Middlebury. His dad worked for Monument Farms. Spooner worked there some too. His high school physics teacher encouraged him to go to college and get a degree in engineering. But back in the 1950s, there was little of today’s public funding for students to pay for college.
