Welcome James Hiers!

MEOC is thrilled to announce the start of new advisor James Hiers. Starting soon, James will be working with a variety of partners in Downeast Maine. James had this to say to introduce himself:

I’m excited to join MEOC and the University of Maine to serve Washington and Hancock counties.  I earned my degree in Criminal Justice at the University of Texas in San Antonio and my degree in Counseling at Gonzaga University.  I have experience as a case manager, counselor, and in the nonprofit sector.  My passion lies in higher education and I’m happy to get to work towards increasing access to college for an adult population in Downeast Maine.
