College Transition Students Mark Semester’s End [Lewiston Adult Education]



Left to right: Renan Ferreira, Richard Patrie, Kassie Schmidt, Melissa Potter and Ouseiny Ousmane gave advice to College Transition Program students about college classes at a celebration on Dec. 19.



Students in the College Transition Program have celebrated the end of their studies and got tips about the next stage of their education thanks to an event at the B Street Community Center.

Graduates of the program shared their experiences in college-level classes at the celebration on Tues., Dec. 19. They all stressed the importance of asking questions of professors when classes got difficult and finding help with academic papers.

The College Transition Program is part of Lewiston Adult Education, is free and designed for people who live or work in Androscoggin County planning to enroll in college in the next 12 to 18 months. It provides a comprehensive review of reading, writing and math in a college-style setting.

The students who received certificates of completion were: Hana Omar, Amal Hassan, Shawnee Cote, Brett Griffin, Isaac Shawver, Joseph Miakouissa and Joao Massela.  

The next College Transition Program starts on Jan. 9 at the B Street Community Center. Classes will meet from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Call Lewiston Adult Education at 207-795-4141 for an application and to schedule a skills assessment.
