There were many examples of teamwork. Mill River senior Aaron Bosch got into the water to pull boats through a particularly dense snaggle of trees.
Amber Hannan, also a Mill River senior, helped and encouraged her peers who were less experienced.
Poultney High School juniors Kim Rupe and Nicole Bogucki went down the river in a kayak, and seemed to do it easily.
Other students in their first year at the Public Safety Services Program are Mill River Union High School seniors Korey Russell and Alan Grenier, West Rutland senior Emily Johnson, Fair Haven Union High School senior Emily Fredette, Otter Valley Union High School senior Ashley Smith, Poultney High School junior Virginia "Ginger" Vaughn, and Rutland High School junior Domenick Brown.
