LEWISTON — Students in the College Transition Program celebrated the end of their studies and received tips about the next stage of their education at an event at the B Street Community Center.

Graduates shared their experiences in college-level classes at the celebration on Dec. 19. They all stressed the importance of asking questions of professors when classes got difficult and finding help with academic papers.

It provides a comprehensive review of reading, writing and math in a college-style setting.

The students who received certificates of completion were Hana Omar, Amal Hassan, Shawnee Cote, Brett Griffin, Isaac Shawver, Joseph Miakouissa and Joao Massela.

The next program will start on Tuesday, Jan. 9, at the B Street Community Center. Classes will meet from 9 a.m. to noon Tuesdays and Thursdays.
