Noah Huebner, Reading
From a young age, Noah Heubner’s life has revolved around the land and forests of Vermont. He grew up hunting, fishing, trapping, gardening, and milling with his father, and developed a strong passion for the land.
As founder and owner of a small business—Huebner Forest and Land Stewardship—Noah mows and trims lawns and prunes ornamental and apple trees. He also has experience operating his family’s sawmill. At River Valley Technical Center, he applies what he learned in the classroom to the lab activities.
“Noah always participates 110%,” said his instructor, John Harmer. Harmer nominated Noah for the award because of his thoughtfulness, reliability, hard work, and diligence.
Noah has been accepted to Vermont Technical College’s VAST Program, in which he will be attending college and concurrently completing his senior year of high school.
“I plan to become a Vermont Licensed Land Surveyor, and pursue forestry as well,” said Noah. “These jobs will allow me to have plenty of time enjoying the beauty of nature, as well as ensuring the preservation of it for future generations to come.”
