Representative Edward Mazurek Returns to RSU13 Adult Education [RSU #13 Adult and Community Education]

Published in Village Soup on December 16, 2010

On December 16, 2010, Representative Edward Mazurek joined the Adult Learning Center located at RSU13’s McLain School. There, he spoke with adult students about educational goals, the local economy and health literacy. Representative Mazurek, a retired teacher and coach, has been a long-time supporter of adult education. “Education is essential at any age. We never stop learning,” Mazurek stated.

Representative Edward Mazurek, of Rockland, is serving his fourth term in the Legislature. “As we look toward economic growth and expansion in the midcoast, our adult workforce is greatest resource. The RSU13 learning center values that resource, and works tirelessly to provide adults with learning opportunities,” Mazurek added.

College Transitions Program for Adults [Lewiston Adult Education]

Lewiston Adult Education is now accepting applications for the Winter/Spring College Transition Program. This program is designed for individuals looking to increase their earning potential by earning a two or four year degree. Any GED/High School Diploma-holding resident of Androscoggin County accepted to the program may enroll at no cost.

Designed to help students prepare for, get accepted to, and be successful in college, the College Transition Program provides a comprehensive review of reading, writing, and math in a setting which simulates an actual college environment. Students who have been away from the classroom for years as well as recent High School graduates benefit from working in a college-style setting before enrolling in college. This transition step saves students much of the time and energy spent adjusting to the new environment, and allows them to better focus on their studies. Students in the program will also visit local college campuses to learn how to take advantage of many of the resources offered by colleges today.

Each semester, the course is specifically formatted to meet the students’ needs. The College Transition Program begins with a basic assessment of the students’ knowledge and skills. The instructor will then modify the structure of the class to lay emphasis on the material that will be most beneficial to the students enrolled that semester. By the end of the course, students will have developed the study habits and time management skills that will work best with their individual learning styles.

Other obstacles unrelated to academics, such as the college application process, financial aid issues, and any logistical challenges unique to the student, will also be addressed in the College Transition Program.

Industry-specific support is also available to those interested in health care. This supplemental program not only provides health-care specific career advising, it has also cultivated relationships with health care employers in the area who are available for networking, mentoring and additional advising.

Three sections of the College Transition Program are available: 1) Tuesdays and Thursdays 9:00 am–Noon; 2) Tuesdays and Thursdays 6:00-9:00 pm; or 3) Wednesdays 9:00 am–3:00 pm. College Transition Program classes will begin January 11th and meet at the B-Street Community Center.

Applications are currently being accepted. Interested candidates must contact Elayne Bean at 795-4141 to schedule an advising appointment prior to registration.

For more detailed information and a full list of courses visit or call 795-4141.
