Our Work

Volunteer Spotlight: Loren Scott

Loren began volunteering with Smart Growth Vermont in April and has since created surveys to help us acquire data concerning general public knowledge of the Smart Growth Principles as well as data about our E-newsletter. He’s also helping us set up and maintain our social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and our blog.

Loren first heard about Smart Growth Vermont when Mary and Suzanne presented to his Sustainable Community Development class. The presentation sparked his interest in our work, especially with local communities.

Loren will be a Junior this fall at the University of Vermont, where he is a Community and International Development major. When he graduates, he hopes to join the Peace Corps and work to help communities thrive. He grew up in Iowa but has lived with his family in Huntington for the past two years. Other than working at Smart Growth Vermont and going to school, Loren enjoys reading, drinking coffee and listening to many different varieties of music.

Thanks to Loren and all of our volunteers for offering a variety of talent, skills and commitment to Smart Growth Vermont. It is critical to the work we do.
