Caribou JMG visits Senator Collins in Washington

Students and advisers from Caribou High School’s Jobs for Maine Graduates program recently visited with U.S. Sen. Susan Collins in her Washington, D.C., office. The group was in Washington for the Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG) National Student Leadership Academy, which allows students from across the country to travel to the capital to strengthen their academic, public speaking and leadership skills to enhance their employment and career advancement opportunities. CHS students Monique Nadeau and Cheyenne Cormier were the only students from Maine participating. With Collins are, from left, Dr. Valerie Waldemarson, CHS JMG adviser; Cormier; Nadeau; and JMG supporter Tracey Westin. “It is inspiring to meet driven student leaders like Monique and Cheyenne, from my hometown of Caribou,” said Collins. “Jobs for Maine’s Graduates plays a vital role in our public schools by providing Maine students with the resources, skills, and knowledge they need as they enter the workforce and pursue their goals.”
