Lisbon – Students in the Alternative Education Program offered at 19 Gartley Street in Lisbon, attended a seminar on college aspirations provided by Marc Gosselin, Director of Admissions at Central Maine Community College in Auburn. “CMCC has been a wonderful resource for Lisbon students and a strong community partner within our school district,” shared Community Resource Coordinator, Monica Millhime. “Our connection with the college continues to grow. Contacting the admissions office, on behalf of our program’s educators, Andy Despres and Brian Breton, to meet with students in the Gartley Street Program provided us with another opportunity and a new focus for students.” Gosselin shared the prerequesits required to attend CMCC and answered specific questions by students on areas of study. “We wanted to offer the students an opportunity to hear for themselves that a college education is within reach for all of them. Students should know about the entry level skills and knowledge they need to be accepted into the community college system,” commented Despres.
