October 2021 Professionals of the Month
Congrats to October Professional of the Month, Jamison Bragdon!He is a senior from Cony enrolled for the second year in the Business Academy program. He has enjoyed learning things in the Business Academy that are outside the scope of his high school curriculum. Creating and managing a budget, communications with others, and establishing credit are all some of the life skills Jamison has appreciated learning about. Last year, Jamison created an entire business plan when the class studied entrepreneurship. Jamison cites a bonus of being in the program is the opportunity to earn college credits. The program is set up so that students can earn 15 college credits a year. Jamison hopes to leave the program with a total of 30 college credits. Jamison’s Business Academy instructor, Mrs. Angela Dostie, states, “Jamison is an intelligent student, with strong values and respect for others.” When Jamison isn’t in school, he likes to spend time with his girlfriend, as well as with friends. After graduation, Jamison plans to attend Central Maine Community College and study Criminal Justice.
Congrats to October Professional of the Month, Ezra Savage!He is a senior from Hall-Dale High School enrolled for the second year in the Computer Technology program. Ezra has enjoyed the set up of the Computer Tech program. There are independent labs and projects. The projects have involved troubleshooting issues and having to find solutions to fix the problem. This work takes a lot of patience, as sometimes the solution can be something very minor. As a second year student, Ezra has been studying networks. His favorite project has been working on a LAN network. Outside of school, Ezra works a customer service job. He knows that good customer service goes hand in hand with computer technology. Being able to use language that people understand to explain the problem a person may be having and explaining how to prevent it in the future is important to him. His instructor, Mr. Mike Fraser, says, “Ezra is showing me who he is capable of being. He is on-time with classwork, willing to help others, a team player and willing to tackle complex problems.” After graduation, Ezra plans to work and attend Southern Maine Community College to study Computer Science or Cyber Security.
