The Maine School of Science and Mathematics is pleased to announce that our very own Luke Shorty, MSSM's Executive Director for the past three and a half years, received the Champion Award for Education, Training and Leadership Development from the Maine Development Foundation. The prestigious award was given at the Maine Development Foundation's 36th annual meeting on Tuesday, October 7 at the Holiday Inn by the Bay in Portland. Shorty was awarded along with six other Maine leaders who are continuing to develop and enhance leadership.
Laura Blackstone, an MSSM senior, recently completed a nine day backpacking trip at Baxter State Park through the Maine Youth Wilderness Leadership Program (MYWLP). She was one of only ten students from Maine accepted in the program.
