MIDDLEBURY — When Mark Stuver entered Middlebury College as a student in 1993, he wasn’t expecting to become a professional dancer. He wanted to study geography.

But Penny Campbell, Senior Lecturer of Dance at the college and Stuver’s first mentor, insisted he continue his journey in dance.

“She took my arm, she looked me in the eye, and she said, ‘you need this,’” Stuver told a small audience at his career talk last Friday at the Mahaney Center for the Arts.

MIDDLEBURY — The Helping Overcome Poverty’s Effects (HOPE) food shelf in Middlebury is seeing a substantial uptick in demand from Addison County residents who are having a hard time making ends meet.

That, in itself, is of major concern to HOPE Executive Director Jeanne Montross.
