David H. Winton Baccalaureate Award

The David H. Winton Baccalaureate Award is presented to the graduate who ranks highest in scholarship among those in the graduating class.

Hannah Elizabeth Tiffany ’22

Hannah Elizabeth Tiffany ’22, a child development major with a minor in education from Enosburg Falls, Vt., has distinguished herself as an exceptional scholar and community member. Hannah’s impressive academic performance earned her the baccalaureate award in child development, as well as a place in the Alpha Chi National College Honor Society. Outside the classroom, she was a member of the Adopt a Grandparent Club.

Hannah completed her internship in a second-grade classroom at Kearsarge Regional Elementary School in New London. Her Capstone project, “Adverse Childhood Experiences’ Impact on Post-Traumatic Growth in College Students,” explored the impact of early trauma on young adults in a higher education setting and was awarded the Capstone prize in child development.

One faculty member said, “Hannah’s academic standing and success are direct results of her ability to synthesize pertinent information across all content areas as well as her extraordinary work ethic. These qualities will serve her well as she continues to pursue a career in teaching.”

After graduation, Hannah will attend the Upper Valley Educators Institute (UVEI) to earn her teaching certificate before seeking employment as an elementary school teacher.
