MIDDLESEX, Vt. (AP) - Thirteen summer "recovery interns" are getting ready to spend the summer helping Vermont continue its recovery from damage caused by Tropical Storm Irene.
The students and recent college graduates will help with cleanup, assess environmental damage and help in other ways.
The young people will be working through the Vermont Campus Compact and will become summer employees of St. Michael's College in Colchester.
The compact describes itself as an organization that works to promote service through, among other things, real world experience. The interns are from six campuses.
The interns will work with organizations such as the American Red Cross, ReBuild Waterbury, the Southeastern Vermont Irene Long Term Recovery Committee and the state's Irene Recovery office
