CALL FOR GEAR UP STUDENT STORIES
All of our GEAR UP students have a story to tell. It's up to us to help them find their voice to tell it. Do you know a student who would be interested in sharing their story with GEAR UP Maine? Be it a story of success or struggle, we want to hear it and share it. It's so important now, more than ever, that our students' voices are heard. Please contact GEAR UP Maine Communication Specialist, Kayla Hopkins firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in diving into this student story-telling adventure.
The GEAR UP Maine program is funded through a grant (reference #P3345050037;
Karmon Simms-Coates, Project Officer) from the U.S. Department of Education to
University of Maine at Farmington administered by Syntiro.
