Maine’s Positive Story of the Day ~ Caribou Community School ~
On Monday, May 22, 8th grade students at Caribou Community School participated in a Mock Legislative Day. Taking on the roles of Representatives, Senators, and Community Members, they delivered testimonies and ran two separate bills (that the real Maine Legislature ran earlier this year.). MPA Executive Director – Professional Division – Holly Blair, along with Representative Dave McCrea and UNUM’s Cary Olsen-Cartwright were there to mentor the students as they walked through the public hearings, work sessions and full House vote. That afternoon, Senator Susan Collins joined the students to talk about the importance of parties working together. What a great way to show students that their voice does matter!
