Cutting Greely High School’s Ponytails!

Cutting Greely High School’s Ponytails!

The Greely High School community is coming together for a Pantene Beautiful Lengths ponytail cutting event Tuesday, May 14 at 1:00pm. Created in partnership with the American Cancer Society, Pantene Beautiful Lengths is the first campaign that encourages individuals to grow, cut, and donate their healthy hair to make free wigs for women who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment. By giving so selflessly of themselves, these individuals will be joining thousands of people across the country who have already made the kindest cut of all.

Workforce Development Competitions Force Students to Show Their Skills

Augusta, ME. – The clock is ticking as we head toward a new high school graduation and college commencement season, and everywhere you turn the same question is being posed: Do our graduates have the skills to meet the demands of today’s job market? Hundreds of high school seniors from the Jobs for Maine’s Graduates’ (JMG) program are confident they do, and spent the day Friday at the Augusta Civic Center proving it at JMG’s 21st Career Development Conference (CDC).

Approximately 500 seniors and a few select juniors faced off against one another at this year’s CDC, competing in a variety of college- and career-readiness contests. From Public Speaking to Decision-Making these competitions give these graduation-ready students the chance to show off the skills they’ve learned in JMG.
