Ethan James Courcelle, son of Annie and James Courcelle of Rutland, is this year’s Veritas et Puritas selection.

Ethan plans to study psychology as he enrolls in higher education. His inspiration in pursuing this career path is his current employment at the St. Joseph Kervick and Loretto Homes of Rutland. Having worked at these assisted living facilities during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, it has become increasingly apparent to him that there is a great need for mental health support in a demographic that is often neglected or forgotten. Ethan will be attending College of the Holy Cross in the fall in hopes of fulfilling all of his educational goals.
