GAHS Student Makes it to the POL Finals!

Congratulations to Mariah Lang from GAHS! She is moving on to the State Finals in the Poetry Out Loud Competition on March 11th at the Waterville Opera House. She emerged as one of five champions from a field of 18 competitors at the Northern Regional POL contest held on February 27th at Hampden Academy! GAHS will send a student on to the state finals for the 6th year in a row. She is one of 2015's 10 strongest POL contestants from over 10,000 young people who began in classroom competitions throughout Maine! Brilliant job, Mariah!

Titan Challenge!

Tristan Richmond, Sam Dolley, and Adam Fortier-Brown came in 1st in our region and 8th out of 110 teams across the state in the Titan Challenge. These students served as the "CEO" of a virtual company and made five key decisions including setting the product's price, production levels, marketing expenses, research & development expenses, and capital improvement expenses. This was an optional opportunity that the boys took advantage of for Ms. McNaughton's entrepreneurship class.
