ORONO — University of Maine student Natalie Bolduc was recently welcomed to the university’s All Maine Women Honor Society, the highest all-inclusive honor society to which a UMaine woman can belong.

Bolduc, a 2013 graduate of Dirigo High School, was one of 12 members inducted. University of Maine President Susan Hunter was also welcomed as an honorary inductee.

Bolduc is a nursing major in the Class of 2017. She participates in a variety of activities on campus, including UMaine Nursing International, Orono Student Nurses Association, Maine Student Nurses Association, the National Student Nurses Association, and Operation HEARTS (Hands-on Education Association Reaching out Through Service). She has also worked as a certified nursing assistant for two years at Rumford Community Home, and now works at Rumford Hospital as a CNA.

Bolduc serves as co-vice president of All Maine Women. After graduation, she plans to practice as a nurse in a rural hospital in Maine, but is keeping her mind open to any opportunities.

Members of the society are distinguished leaders, scholars and outstanding female role models. These women are also active in community service efforts and display Maine spirit. Members pledge to uphold and promote the ideals, standards and traditions of the University of Maine, effectively acting as a balance wheel on the campus and cooperating with all organizations and movements. They are also tasked with carrying on work which will tend to draw faculty, staff, students and alumni together.

The All Maine Women Class of 2017 began its semester by participating in the Maine Hello and assisting the incoming freshmen class on move-in day. During the second week of school, members volunteered at the Ronald McDonald House in Bangor.

Recently, All Maine Women and the Senior Skulls were welcomed at the President’s House for dinner and a discussion on projects of interest at UMaine to assist with in the coming year.
