LEWISTON – Lewiston Adult Education participated in a reception for legislators on March 10 in the Hall of Flags at the State House, sponsored by the Maine Adult Education Association.

The purpose was to educate members of the legislature and their staff on the work being done in adult education across the state. In addition, students from many adult education programs were present and toured the State House, visited the House and the Senate Chambers and the State Museum.

During the Senate’s morning session, Sen. Peggy Rotundo introduced a joint resolution recognizing the many achievements of adult education in Maine, from its inception in 1871 to the present.

Some of the adult education programs highlighted in the resolution include adult high school diploma, General Educational Development, job readiness, workplace learning, family literacy, an array of community programs and collaborative efforts with post-secondary institutions.

Gov. John Baldacci addressed the gathering at noon and reiterated his support for adult education programs and their value to Maine’s continued economic development.
