A glimpse at our Class of 2014

Posted on Wednesday July 16, 2014

This year, we graduated 23 students who once thought they might never complete high school.  Now, they are on their way to college and jobs throughout Maine and New England, including working at The Maine Wildlife Park, at a preschool, at a car dealership, landscaping, working in restaurants and more.

Several of our graduates are headed to Southern Maine Community College and several are studying nursing and early childhood education.  Two have received significant college scholarships, and all are headed out into the world with new confidence and skills.

Congratulations all!
