VERGENNES At a recent meeting of the Vergennes Lions Club, three of its members were honored with Melvin Jones Fellowships for their outstanding service to the community. Ann Sullivan, not a member of the Lions, was also presented a Melvin Jones Fellowship for her outstanding community service work that she has shared with the community for nearly four decades. An MJF is a presentation of $1,000 in the honorees name to the Lions Club International Foundation for its humanitarian work around the world. The Melvin Jones Fellowships, presented by Past International Director Tom Broughton of Bridport, are the highest honor that can be presented to an individual Lion or outstanding citizen in the community. Anne Sullivan Could be called the Vergennes area citizen of the year, for outstanding community service and consistent dedication to so many causes in the area. Tom Broughton in presenting the award cited her 35 years as an educator at Vergennes Union High School, serving in nearly every position, except principal. She has been named District Teacher of the Year and Vermong FFA Education of the Year. When a job needs to be done, Anne Sullivan is there, whether it be a wedding or a funeral, a proclaimation or a dedication, she can compose the words to make it all work. Ann Sullivan does this, with no apparent effort, with expert words to tell the real story. One parent wrote, "to really appreciate Mrs. Sullivan you need to have attended a Class Night presentation, with slides or video narrated by Ann, llistening as she personally touches your own child, along with each hope for the future. Her didecation and devotion to education and the children of Vergennes is just as strong today as it was 35 years ago. Ann Sullivan has served heer community well, as a justice of the peace, selectboard member, town moderator, Trustee of the Bixby Library, Director of the Vergennes Pool and more.
