Senior Assistant Director of AdmissionsAZ, CA (Northern), HI, NV, NM
Valerie Demong joined the admissions staff in 2000 and laments that she didn't come to this work earlier, as the personal interaction with both current and prospective students is so rewarding. Val and husband Geoff graduated from Middlebury in 1966 and then returned to Addison County after graduate school. Here they put down roots, literally and figuratively, when planting an apple orchard in Shoreham which they farmed for many years and where their two daughters grew up. Over the years Val served as Justice of the Peace, performing many weddings and Civil Unions, and also served as chair of the Shoreham Selectboard. She's a graduate of the Vermont Leadership Institute and served on the statewide board of the Preservation Trust of Vermont which is committed to helping Vermont maintain the beauty of its landscape, classic architecture, and the vital small-town communities that define our special state. And, whenever possible, you’ll find Val in the yoga studio.
