Region Two MELMAC Initiative College Goodie Basket Winner – Cheyenne Raymond
Cheyenne Raymond, an Early Childhood Education student, was the lucky winner of the Region Two MELMAC Initiative College Goodie Basket, awarded for putting her college acceptance letter into a drawing for the basket. The Goodie basket included personal care items, school supplies, and snacks to help with the transition to college life. All items were packed into a laundry basket, which will be helpful to Cheyenne for weekend trips home from NMCC. She is a member of the Houlton Band of Maliseets and worked on her field placement at the Malisseet Head Start to accrue the hours needed in a working Early Childhood Education setting to attain her state CECA certification. Cheyenne also achieved a 10 hour OSHA card and 6 college credits in Early Childhood Education through a dual enrollment with NMCC during her two years at Region Two.
