Maine’s Positive Story of the Day ~ Hancock County Technical Center in Ellsworth ~
Hancock County Technical Center hosted a Middle School Camp. Our camp filled in less than a week with nearly 100 students enrolled. The students came from a wide array of sending schools, 19 to be exact! Students chose their top 3 program options and were able to participate in 2 programs over the course of the morning. Not only did we have that many students sign up, but we had 30+ HCTC students volunteer for the event giving up their Saturday to help mentor these students.
It was exciting to see students in grades 6-8 getting these hands-on experiences that help them think about career options. We believe this event has the potential to ignite a student’s passion and begin planning for their future.
