Many of our students participated in the Skills USA Competition held in Bangor at the United Technology Center. Thank each and everyone of you for the hard work you put in to prepare for this event!  The skill, creativity and ingenuity of all the contestants was truly amazing!  Our own students placed very well in this highly skilled contest. Congratulations to Dan Pratt who won a silver and to Jasmen Libby for her silver medal, Ricky Allen for his bronze medal and Alex Namer for his bronze medal. We are so PROUD OF YOU!  In addition to all the medals, Dan received a $2,500 scholarship and Ricky received a $3,000 scholarship!  WELL DONE! 

A representative from Bath Iron Works came to our school on Wednesday March 13 to speak with interested students about the 1200 jobs they will be opening in the area.  Some of our areas of focus are greatly in need and they encouraged all students who are in their final years of our school to apply. Welders, students with an understanding of technology and mechanics and even entry level graphic designers are encouraged to apply immediately. The room was packed with students at both informational sessions.  What a wonderful opportunity for our students to pursue the career they have chosen!

Officials from Avita of Brunswick, a local assisted living community specializing in memory care, recently presented Region 10 Technical High School’s Certified Nursing Assistance program with five brand new, state-of-the-art privacy curtains for its health occupations lab. The lab, designed to replicate a working hospital or assisted care unit, is designed to teach Region 10 students program basics in a clinical environment before they work with patients in real clinical settings as a part of their training. Avita is one of several area health care facilities that serve as a training site for Region 10’s CNA students. Avita’s Executive Director Gary Currier said, “We are thrilled to be able to support Region 10’s CNA program in this way. We’ve had so many excellent students work with us and for us over the years, and we wanted to contribute to the program with this donation.” Before Region 10 CNA students are ready to work with real patients, they undergo two months of classroom and lab prep in the fall, learning the Maine State Board of Nursing CNA curriculum and practicing patient care in their lab. According to Region 10’s CNA instructor, Joanne McMahon, “These new curtains help provide a sense of pride in our program and realism in the students’ studies.” THANK YOU AVITA!
