LIVERMORE FALLS — Teacher Anne Weatherbee is looking for Livermore Falls High School alumni willing to speak on opening day of school Sept. 2 about how they achieved their dreams, and those willing to become mentors to students.

High school teachers will continue a student aspirations theme at 8 a.m. on Griffin Field as they have done on opening day the last few years, Weatherbee said. This year it will be “Oh, the dreams we’ve had.”

Attorney Clint Boothby of Livermore, a former dairy farmer, will tell students about the path he followed to achieve his goal.

Students will also be asked about their own dreams and long-range plans.

Teachers want to establish an alumni mentoring program this year and match alumni and students. “It’s a whole new thing for us to do,” Weatherbee said.

Anyone interested in participating is asked to contact her at [email protected], or stop by the football field at 8 a.m. Sept. 2.

“We’d love to have as many as possible to talk with students about dreams and get students excited about looking beyond the end of next week and to think about what they can do, where they can go,” Weatherbee said.

“I think the alumni mentoring program is going to be a fabulous asset for our students just at the beginning stage to see those who have started their own businesses. There are so many possibilities out there,” she said.
The session is open to the community. Breakfast will also be served on the field.

“It should be fun,” Weatherbee said.
