MEOC participant featured in Belfast Adult Education Article

Jamie Russell in cap and gown.MEOC and Belfast Adult Education participant Jamie Russell was recently featured in an article highlight her success.

In June just two years after coming back to school, Jamie achieved her high school diploma and was accepted at Eastern Maine Community College. She was also published in The Change Agent an adult education newspaper for social justice. She has a network of staff at Belfast Adult Education to turn to for encouragement and support as she starts her journey to college. With guidance from Belfast Adult Education, Jamie thoughtfully planned her coursework to meet her goals. When asked what her plan involved, Jamie replied, “In my last year of high school diploma classes, I was careful to take prerequisites that would be beneficial to college. In my final semester at Belfast Adult Education in addition to finishing work for my high school diploma, I took the college transition program, College Connection, along with five courses toward my high school graduation. This was a heavy course load (as a single mom of three), but I was determined to do the best I could to be ready for college this fall.”

We at MEOC are proud to partner to with Belfast Adult Ed, and proud to be part of Jamie’s team! Congratulations Jame, and good luck going forward!
