MIIS Staff Mark the End of the Academic Year

Middlebury Institute staff came together to celebrate the end of the academic year. The annual event brings staff together during a relatively quiet time of year to celebrate the hard work of the past 12 months. The event honored departing staff members for their service.

During the event, MIIS alumna, Lauri Pastrone, (MIIS BA in International Economics ’84) gave a short presentation on Peace by Piece International, an organization dedicated to sourcing socially conscious gifts.

During the event, each staff member received a card holder handmade from pineapple leaves.

Lauri shared fond memories of her time at the Institute, including visits to the 100 square foot snack stand affectionately called “The People’s House” that used to stand in the Holland Center courtyard.
