ACT Member Spotlight: Melissa Mears

We caught up with Melissa Mears, an ACT member since 2014, and Benefit Program Specialist at the Economic Services Division here in Bennington.

And we asked her: What made you want to be an ACT member.

Melissa Mears

I want to be the change. There’s not enough opportunity for youth to promote themselves here, and ACT is a great avenue to do so. 

Thank you Melissa, for your dedication to Bennington youth and embodying the change you want to see.
