LISBON — Members of the Lisbon High School Class of 2016 recently participated in a Career Day offered by Central Maine Community College.
Students were accompanied by their Guidance Counselors, Shari Jordan and Amy Sewick during presentations on two career aspirations and related courses offered at the campus.
Students participating in the presentations were offered incentives and were eligible to win a $25 gift card courtesy of the college. Sophomore Cody Campbell, son of Mark and Laura Campbell of Lisbon, was a recipient of the drawing.
“Thanks to a grant awarded to Lisbon High School by the MELMAC Education Foundation we are able to offer our students numerous college visits,” said Counselor Shari Jordan. “Monies from the grant provide our students with unlimited possibilities to connect them to aspirations beyond high school. The grant provides college visits of this nature, in addition to other post-secondary institutions students’ and their parents would like to visit prior to graduation. Our informational parent nights, Financial Aid nights and personalized appointments are also provided by the foundation.”
