New Parking Spaces Make Reaching Lewiston High School Easier [Lewiston Adult Education]

Summer road work included the creation of parking spaces closer to Lewiston High School.


Lewiston Adult education students heading to classes at Lewiston High School will find access to the building has become much easier thanks to summer road work.

The dropoff and pickup lanes in front of Lewiston have expanded to include more parking spaces. The removal of a hedge that divided the lanes means that the entrance of the high school is much easier to see from the road.

All Lewiston Adult Education students enter the high school through the main entrance behind the flagpole. Staffers lead students to classrooms in the building.

Anyone in need of additional directions can call the Lewiston High School office at 207-784-2928.

A former Lewiston Adult Education student has received an honor from Northeast Technical Institute.

Michel Simba, who took the Adult Basic Education class and volunteered at the Adult Learning Center in 2017, was named the student of the month for June at NTI.

“Michel is one of our top Manufacturing students. He is always on time and always respectful of his fellow classmates,” a release on the NTI website said. “When we have visited Manufacturing companies, he is the first to ask questions and seek additional information.”

Simba is fluent in English, French and Portuguese. He taught a conversational English class and a computer class at Lewiston Adult Education.

“Michel is a dedicated and avid learner.  He was an inspiration to many other students in my ABE classes. I'm so happy for him! ,” said Amy Hatch, College Transitions and ABE instructor for Lewiston Adult Education.

Simba has completed his training at NTI and has been hired by Modula Inc. of Lewiston.
