“Life Stories of Middlebury College” is a multi-phase initiative intended to gather people’s experiences while at the college, particularly reflections that highlight issues of diversity.  In her interview, Shirley Collado talks about growing up Dominican in New York city, the influence of her maternal grandmother and how the decision to be part of the Posse program and attend Vanderbilt University changed her life.
