PVAEC celebrated with students, families and staff during its graduation ceremony at Center Theatre in Dover-Foxcroft on May 26, 2010.
The keynote speaker was Joanna Russell, Director of Tri-County Workforce Investment Board. Joanna's motivational speech began by noting that she took Adult Education refresher courses when she was in her thirties to start her on the path to her MBA.
The student speaker this year was Benjamin Richardson. Ben's moving speech spoke of his journey from the depths of drug and alcohol abuse after the death of his father to earning his GED and being accepted as a freshman at Eastern Maine Community College.
The musical interlude was provided by Susan Ramsey and Ruth Fogg, North Country Strings Duo.
Daniel Smith was awarded his honor cord for achieving his high GED Score. The cord and certificate were awarded by Eve Salley, Chief GED Examiner and Pam Flanagan, GED Examiner.
The presentation of the diplomas was handled by Paul Stearns, RSU 80 Superintendent and Thelma Regan. Then the graduates turned their tassels and exited the theater.

PVAEC held its second Art and Crafts Exhibition on Saturday, April 17, 2010 at the Morton Ave Municipal Complex in Dover-Foxcroft.
Our community members had the chance to tour our facility and at the same time to view the work of our art instructors and their students. There were painting and drawing exhibits as well as knitting. It was a great opportunity to see what can be created by taking an adult education Arts and Crafts class. For more information, call 564-6525.
Here is a sample of the work displayed. We have very talented students and instructors!
