On January 31st, 2019, Sanford High School and Regional Technical Center
hosted its first ever, “Celebrating Partnerships” event in the Agora
Presentation Area of our new school. The event was part celebratory and
part networking and focused on bringing together our school and
community resources to create dialogue about ways to partner, such as:
internships, job shadows, business tours, guest speakers, and ELOs.
Community partners helped provide insight on necessary “real world”
competencies and the skills they are looking for in their workers and
school staff provided insight on curriculum and students’ skills and
talents. The event was funded through monies awarded to Sanford Regional
Technical Center (SRTC) by MELMAC Education Foundation through a
Systems Innovation grant. Several local businesses and SRTC program
instructors were present allowing for productive and fun collaboration
time. Many thanks to Plants Plus for designing and providing the
beautiful floral arrangements, Above & Beyond Catering for the
delicious food and drink, and MELMAC Education Foundation for the
monetary support.
