FARMINGTON — When Regional School Unit 9 Director Ross Clair got up from his chair at the board meeting Tuesday, he said he had a list of 31 potential replacements for the superintendent.

He handed out a stack of papers that listed the names of Mt. Blue High School’s National Honor Society, including the 31 students that were inducted into the society during a ceremony Monday night at the Mt. Blue Campus.

The list also had an additional 13 potential replacements who previously were inducted into the society. The adviser for the group is Sean Minear, culinary arts instructor at the Foster Career and Technical Education Center at the Mt. Blue campus.

Clair, of Chesterville, told board members, Superintendent Tom Ward and others he had permission from RSU 9 board Chairman Mark Prentiss of Farmington to make the presentation. It appeared Ward didn’t know about it.

Society members Jacob Williams and Autumn Clair are on the board, representing students.

Board members applauded the student representatives and the others in the society.


“We just have outstanding students. We are so fortunate,” Ward said. They are so talented, he said.

New members inducted into the society are Evan Backus, Alex Bunnell, Kayla Chapman, Jennie Chen, Autumn Clair, Miriam Cohen, Kristen Davis, Nichole Decker, Eryn Doiron, MacKenzie Dwyer, Cordell Ellis, Emilee Eustis, Savannah Fay, Alexander Gilbert, Jenna Gilmore, Anna Glass, Mitchell Guillaume, Sierra Hoes, Devon Hoyt, Michaela Hutchinson, Chenoa Jackson, Caitlin Kane, Park Laflin, John Leopold, Matthew Loewen, Sarah Loewen, Roshan Luick, Justin Meservier, Steven Minns, Nicole Pires and Nate Pratt-Holt.

Previously inducted were Aaron Willingham, president; Sarah Cummings, vice president; Victoria Newbill, secretary; Anthony Franchetti, treasurer; Jacob “JT” Williams; Caitlyn Pease; Isabela “Isa” Navarro; Maxwell “Max” Blais; Christopher “Chris” Titus, events coordinator; Tavia Robshaw; Terry Clark; and Drew Parsons.
