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.
