GEAR UP Maine Alum Receives MEEOA's Rising Star Award
BJ McCollister is the first GEAR UP Maine Alumni to receive the Maine Educational Opportunity Association's Rising Star Award. GEAR UP Maine's Dori Fellman presented him with the award. 

The Rising Star Award honors emerging leaders who strive toward the highest levels of personal and professional accomplishment, who excel in their chosen field, devote time and energy to their community in a meaningful way, and serve as a role model for other economically disadvantaged, first generation college bound students and students with disabilities.

Overwhelmed by the number of student crafted trees that just went into the dumpster after his literature unit on the book Speak, Dan Ryder sought new ways to engage his students in rich learning.

Blue High School.
