Under Matt’s leadership, the program has grown to provide assistance to 75 students and 6 teachers for the Fall 2012 session. He continues to explore ways he can make a larger impact on youth education in central Maine, and has recently begun working to start a mentoring program for first generation college students.” The Awards’ dinner will be happening on April 26, 2013 at Colby College.
