Jobs for Maine Graduates (JMG) organized a First Responder Celebration Day at CMS on Monday, October 28. They had the opportunity to celebrate the service of our local responders as students lined the hallways cheering on the responders as they entered the building. They then gathered in the library where each responder spoke about their career path and the critical need for our young people to explore careers within public service. Eighth graders Kaylee Fyfe and Alexia McDonald highlighted the important role of a dispatcher, “first responders wouldn’t know where to go without their communication.” Professionals representing the following agencies joined us for the event:
Game Warden Service – David Ross.
Mikael Nunez – Maine State Police.
Shawn Porter – Maine State Police with K-9 Myka.
Dan Brockway – Delta Ambulance.
Michelle Grass – Delta Ambulance.
Tim Theriault – Chief China Village Fire Dept.
Ivano Stefanizzi – Kennebec County Sheriff Dept.
DeeDee Roberge – Dispatcher Maine Dept. of Public Safety.
Peggy Barrett – Dispatcher Maine Dept. of Public Safety.
Bill Van Wickler – Chief Weeks Mills Fire Dept.
Shawn O’Leary – Chief Winslow Police Dept.
Tracey Frost – Oakland Police Dept. and School Resource Office, RSU#18.
