2016-17 Maranacook Adult Education High School Graduates

I am so proud of all of our students who earned their high school diploma and HiSET during the 2016-17 school year. All of these individuals worked very hard to achieve their dream and should be an inspiration to others who would also like to earn their high school completion credentials. All of these students shared a common drive to succeed and achieved their goals by being focused, motivated and never quitting. Here at Maranacook Adult Education, every student who enters our high school diploma program WILL succeed, as long as they are willing to commit to our program of study by attending class regularly and always being present mentally as well as physically.

2017-18 promises to be yet another successful academic year. Already we have 6 students enrolled in our high school diploma and HiSET program. Throughout the year, these individuals will work with our mathematics, reading and writing tutors to develop and refine their skills so that they can successfully pass the HiSET examination. We are very proud to announce that our success rate on students taking and passing the HiSET exam on first attempt is almost 100%. This impressive rate of success is due to the high quality of our instructional staff and the innate drive within our students to succeed.

Hard work pays off!

Long time adult education student John Dorgosek, after 3 years in our program, graduated on May 3rd with his adult education diploma. Arriving at our program with a little over a 6 high school credits, John worked tirelessly to gain the 21 credits needed to graduate with an adult education diploma. John has been the most thoughtful and dedicated student I have ever encountered in my 20 years as an educator and is an inspiration to all.

Over the past several years in our program, John has repeatedly shared that the skills he has learned in test taking, math, reading comprehension and writing have helped him not only work toward his goal of achieving a diploma but have also helped him immensely in thriving in his current profession. John currently works at Darlings as an automobile mechanic where he is considered a leader in his field, offering advanced auto mechanics workshops and skills instruction to his fellow employees.

I am extremely proud of John and what he has accomplished and I want to thank the instructional staff, office personnel and school custodians for the support, warm words and friendly smiles they all offered to John over the past several years. Congratulations to John and a special thanks to all of the staff members at RSU 38 who helped John achieve his lifelong dream.
