Kevin Raye considers himself lucky to have attended Bates College after growing up in Washington County, which is consistently one of Maine’s poorest counties.

“I had seven brothers,” Raye says. “I was the seventh of eight boys. And, I think when you grow up in a big family like that, you learn the art of compromise. You don’t always get your way. I’d say that was a big influence in my life.”
