Left to Right: Vermont Governor Jim Douglas, Dr. Karen Fitzhugh, Jay Ramsey)On Monday morning, April 25, a little more than a month to the day of the Brown Schools announcement of bankruptcy, Dr. Fitzhugh and Jay Ramsey, Director of Communications at the school, met with the governor of Vermont, Jim Douglas. The purpose of the meeting was to secure his support, and the backing of his administration. The Governor met privately with Dr. Fitzhugh and Mr. Ramsey for approximately twenty minutes to discuss the status of the school in the bankruptcy and the impact the closing of the school would have on the local economy.
Governor Douglas assured Dr. Fitzhugh and Mr. Ramsey that he would do all he could to secure the continued existence of the King George School in its current location, and with its current mission.

After meeting with the Governor, Dr. Fitzhugh and Mr. Ramsey met with local officials and the Director of the Northeast Kingdom Chamber of Commerce to garner local support for the school, and to point out the benefits the school has on the local rural economy.
