LISBON FALLS — Ryan Brewer, a Class of 2013 graduate of Lisbon High School, was the first of recent graduates to be invited to participate in a MELMAC Education Program Aspirations project.

Brewer is currently attending the oldest private military college in the country, Norwich University, in Northfield, Vt. Brewer is a recruit in the Corps of Cadets studying computer securities and information assurances.

Brewer spoke about his experience as a recruit to a number of current Lisbon High School students on Dec. 19 at the LHS Campus, 2 Sugg Drive.

“Lisbon High School is proud to have its graduates participate in the Aspirations program,” said Principal Ken Healey. “Part of our newly, revamped strategy with MELMAC is to include students and community members to share their successes with our students. The MELMAC Education Foundation recently provided us with a grant allowing us to continue nurturing the beyond high school aspirations for college and other levels of higher education. The partnership with MELMAC continues to assist with costs of college visits for all of our students, sponsors parent/student nights, financial aid opportunities and so much more.”

Brewer shared that his experiences at Lisbon High School helped prepare him for success in college. He stressed that involvement in academics, athletics, other clubs and community service programs, both at high school and college, are extremely important for students to embrace. Brewer is expected to be on the dean’s list for the fall semester.

He is the son of Brent and Sybill Brewer of Lisbon.

Aspiration sessions with former graduates will continue throughout the school year. For more information on other events and programs, visit Community Resource News in Lisbon Schools and the LHS Guidance pages on Facebook.
