STUDENT OF MONTH — The Mechanic Falls, Minot and Poland Tri-Town Optimist Club President Jeff Gagnon stands with Cadence Peters – the club’s October RSU 16 Student of the Month recipient. Cadence, a sixth grader at Poland Community School, is described by both her Teacher and her Principal as a cheerful student who is always smiling, positive and sincere – an encouragement to everyone she comes in contact with. She shares with others, works cooperatively in the classroom, and is a great role model for her peers.
