Maine Water Co. is pleased to announce that three of its employees have graduated from Management Candidate School. Marissa Carr, Michael Cummons and Chris Remick of Maine Water received a diploma for their participation in the 12-month MCS, which required their attendance one day each month from October 2012 to September 2013.
Judy Wallingford, President of Maine Water, commented that the entire Maine Water family is proud of their achievement. She stated, “The commitment and dedication of Marissa, Mike and Chris to complete this rigorous program is a real testament to their desire to serve their colleagues, and the families and communities that rely on Maine Water for their drinking water and public fire protection every day.” Ms. Wallingford also added, “Maine Water’s participation in the MCS reflects the Company’s commitment to developing strong leaders who will be good stewards of our natural resources while delivering on our important mission as a public water supplier.”
Marissa, Mike and Chris and 15 other candidates participated in Maine’s fourth management curriculum designed to prepare mid-level drinking water and wastewater treatment plant personnel for career advancement in utility management. The curriculum included personnel management, supervisory skills, labor relations, budgeting and engineering basics. The MCS was coordinated by the Maine Joint Environmental Training Coordinating Committee (JETCC) with support from the Maine Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), Maine Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Maine Wastewater Control Association (MWWCA) and Maine Water Utilities Association (MWUA).
Marissa Carr works in Maine Water’s Biddeford and Saco Division, Mike Cummons works in the Engineering and Technical Services group, and Chris Remick works in the Bucksport Division.
Graduation ceremonies were held during the MWWCA annual convention on Thursday, September 19, at Sugarloaf.
