Lake Region and Fryeburg Area Adult Education Graduation
Thursday, June 16, 2016
Students, faculty and family gathered at Stevens Brook School Gymnasium for the graduation of the students who completed all diploma requirements during the 2015/2016 academic year. Ten students of the 16 who met their requirements stood to receive their diplomas from School Board Chair Janice Barter and Superintendent Alan Smith. Four of the students received honor recognition for earning exemplary scores that indicated College and Career Readiness Standards on the HiSET diploma equivalency exams. They wore red cords to signify this achievement.
Our guest speaker was Ms. Nichelle Gardner, a GED graduate of our adult education program in 1989. She delivered a poignant message of persistence, and quoted Fabienne Fredrickson: “The things you are passionate about are not random, they are your calling.” She encouraged the students to open all the doors and not be afraid to walk through them. Her own persistence is proof of her calling and passion. Ms. Gardner is currently a graduate student at USM studying to become a Licensed Professional Counselor. Her story was an inspiration to both the students and the audience.
The Maine Adult Education Association awards two $500 scholarships each year. There are 102 adult education programs in Maine and one of our students, Dakota Ward, was selected to receive one of the MAEA scholarships to attend college. He is enrolled in CMCC's Graphic Communications program for the fall of 2016.

PRESS RELEASE: June 13, 2016
By Madelyn Litz, Adult Education Director
Our adult education programming is winding down for the school year, with graduation set for Thursday, June 16 at 6PM at Stevens Brook School. Look for pictures in next week’s paper!
We’ve recently had two ceremonies for students completing both our Fire Fighter training and Certified Nursing Assistant programs. We are very proud of their accomplishments. These are folks who have received workforce training with Adult Education that meets employment needs in our communities!
We are highlighting a new workforce training opportunity this summer for those interested in obtaining their CDL Class B license! Students completing this class will be able to drive a school bus, passenger bus, dump truck, fuel truck, or any vehicle in this weight class. Class begins on July 12 at our Educational Services Building behind the high school. A great opportunity, and only $200.00 for this valuable training! Other requirements are necessary, so call our office at 627-4291 or visit our website: lakeregion-fryeburg.maineadulted.org for more information.
It’s important for all our residents in both communities to know that ALL of our academic classes, career advising, college transition, and HiSET and diploma programming will be running right through the summer. We’ll continue to use our Bridgton location on Wednesdays at the Town Office, the library in Fryeburg, and our main center in Casco. Remember, it’s never too late to graduate! Call 627-4291 for more information on all our academic, workforce, and enrichment programs.
We’re working on our Fall 2016 catalog now, so if you’re interested in teaching or taking a class, please call us so we can continue to provide programming that meets the needs of our residents.
