The Mitchell Institute
This past weekend (August 4th), the Mitchell Institute held its annual scholarship brunch at the Wells Conference Center at the University of Maine, Orono. Over 100 students have been awarded scholarships this year. They represent nearly every public high school in the state.
At his event, Senator George Mitchell spoke to the assembled students, along with their parents and educators from around the state. He talked about the need for education, and for providing the opportunity for it to everyone. Following the talk, the students had an opportunity for a moment with the senator, and a photo of the two of them.
I've had the pleasure of making this collection of images happen, and I could not be more honored. Why? Not so much for the photos, but for briefly getting to meet this collective student body. They are turning into the future leaders of this state, and make me smile with hope.
