SB Mentoring, the school-based mentoring program of the South Burlington School District, celebrated its nearly 60 mentors and their commitment to honoring the young leaders in the program with a Winter Gala Dinner and Silent Auction January 13 at Frederick H. Tuttle Middle School. The event also celebrated January as National Mentoring Month. Chad Butt, Executive Director of Mobius, Vermont’s Mentoring Partnership, hosted the event, while Helena Everse, South Burlington High School freshman, gave the keynote address with her mentor Mary Loyer as the first-ever student speaker at the annual event. A special recognition was given to the six mentors who have been in the program since its 2011-2012 founding: Brenda Balon, Karin Clarke, Angela Ferro, Joann Jarvis, Mary Loyer and Kris Magnant.
