Williston Vermont is a town located in Chittenden County, in the Burlington region of the state, just east of Burlington, the University of Vermont, and the Burlington Internaltional Airport. I-89 and Route 2 are the major roads that pass through the town.
In the 1970's, there was controversy over a proposed shopping mall, which was eventually abandoned, however today there are several "big box" stores near the originally proposed site.
The town was named for Samuel Willis, a wealthy Quaker from Long Island, and the first settler was Vermont's first Governor, Thomas Chittenden. In addition to Thomas Chittenden, other notable residents include co-founders of Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream, Jerry Greenfield and Ben Cohen.
We are excited to announce that the Vermont Department of Health’s Asthma Program is working in collaboration with the American Lung Association on an Asthma Friendly Schools Award. This award will recognize Local Education Agencies (LEAs) who can demonstrate the highest commitment to improving and maintaining asthma friendly policies and practices in their schools and promoting good asthma management among their students. The maximum award will be $2,000 for up to three LEAs to continue to foster asthma-friendly environments. The awards will be distributed by the Governor (invited) and the Commissioner of Health in an award ceremony held in May [date and location to be determined] during National Asthma Awareness month, and will include students, parents and staff from award winning schools. The electronic application link is below. The deadline for completion of the survey is April 30th.
