Seventeen seniors at SRTC received a tool package or a monetary scholarship from the partnership of SRTC and the Home Builders and Remodelers Association of Maine. The HBARME group provided assistance in acquiring materials and facilitated connections to local businesses and contractors. The home building project has become self-sustaining and is able to generate a scholarship fund for the students involved. This year’s students received construction, electrical wiring, plumbing tools, or financial awards to help in their future education for diverse professions, from heavy equipment mechanic to engineer.

SRTC’s Recognition Night was held on Thursday, May 26th at Alumni Stadium. Over 250 students were honored for completing a one or two year program at SRTC.

Step-Up Day for SRTC was held on May 31st. Students who have been accepted to SRTC for the 2022-2023 school year spent half of their school day meeting their teachers and learning about the program that they plan to attend next year. Many SRTC students served as mentors to new students.
