In 2019 the Mission introduced a new College Exploration and Engagement Program (CEE) for Sumner and Narraguagus junior and senior high school students centered on college preparation, persistence, and completion. Christina Griffith, the Mission Director of Davis Maine Scholarship, sent this report on the CEE group’s first in-person gathering in twelve months.
“For the first time since March 2020, fifteen Sumner and Narraguagus junior and senior high school students in our college exploration and engagement program gathered at Weald Bethel Community Center for a mini retreat.
“As part of the afternoon, students did some reflective writing and created nature art pieces based on prompts that centered on “I am someone who…” and “I am from….” Here are a few glimpses of what the students created.”
