The 2011 Central Lincoln County Adult Education Recognition Night held, Thursday June 16 at the Skidompha Library was a dream come true for the nine graduates who donned capd and gowns. This year there were thirteen Adult Education graduates in all. The graduates who participated in the commencement ceremony were: Amanda Colby, Joel Leeman, Caitlyn Little, Jeff Robbins, Janice Seiders, Matthew Smith, Sophia Swain-Stark (no pictured), Nicholas Young and Morgan Zimmerman. Raquele Corey, Luke Dale-Smith, Sumner Keith and Kristina Sprague also earned their GED's but were not present at the graduation ceremony.
Several Awards were given out including the College Transitions Courage to Grow Award which went to Libby West. The award given out by Central Maine Community College includes a scholarship for one course at CMCC. The Adult Education Literacy Persistent Learner award went to Vicki Fleury. And GED graduate received the personal reward of overcoming her fears to read an essay she wrote during the GED program. Her reading was met with a burst of applause from the standing room only crowd that gathered to honor the graduates.
