Penobscot County Spelling Bee Finals

Saturday, Feb. 28, 2015 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Location: The Gracie Theatre at Husson University, 1 College Circle, Bangor, Maine

For more information: 207-941-7888; gracietheatre.com/

The local Penobscot County Spelling Bee finals will be held on Saturday, February 28 at 1:00 p.m. at Husson University’s Gracie Theatre in Bangor.

The winner of this competition will qualify to compete in the Scripps National Spelling Bee Competition in the Washington, D.C. area this May. The event is free and open to the public.

“Husson University is proud to be able to host this event for the fourth consecutive year. The spelling abilities of the participants never fail to impress everyone who attends,” said Husson University Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost Lynne Coy-Ogan.

Organized locally by Husson University’s School of Education, the event helps promote academic excellence. Each participating school in Penobscot County gets to send two students to compete in the countywide competition at The Gracie. These students have already proven themselves to be exceptional spellers by winning competitions at their respective schools. The Husson program is open to students 15 years of age or younger who are in grades 5-8.

The Penobscot County Spelling Bee is an elimination-style competition held in front of an audience and a panel of judges. Husson University’s Associate Professor of Elementary and Secondary Education, Dr. Sandip Wilson, will be the person responsible for providing the words to the students.

As the sponsor, Husson University will provide the winner and a parent or guardian with an all-expense-paid trip to the Washington, D.C. area. This individual will be one of two students representing the State of Maine in the national competition.

Every fall, tens of thousands of schools enroll in the spelling bee program. Schools then conduct spelling bees at the classroom, grade, and/or school level. The winners of these local competitions then go on to compete in the Scripps National Spelling Bee in the Washington, D.C. area.

The Scripps National Spelling Bee is the nation’s largest and longest-running educational promotion administered on a not-for-profit basis by The E.W. Scripps Company and local spelling bee sponsors like Husson University around the world. The goal of the event is to help students improve their spelling, increase their vocabularies, learn concepts, and develop correct English usage that will help them all their lives.

For more than 100 years, Husson University has prepared future leaders to handle the challenges of tomorrow through innovative undergraduate and graduate degrees. With a commitment to delivering affordable classroom, online and experiential learning opportunities, Husson University has come to represent superior value in higher education. Our Bangor campus and off-campus satellite education centers in Southern Maine, Wells and Northern Maine provide advanced knowledge in business; health and education; pharmacy studies; science and humanities; as well as communication. In addition, Husson University has a robust adult learning program. For more information about educational opportunities that can lead to personal and professional success, visit Husson.edu.

Machias Bay Chamber rehires Mack as Executive Director

MACHIAS, Maine — The Machias Bay Area Chamber of Commerce has rehired Sharon K. Mack of Machias as its executive director. Mack served as MBACC’s director from early 2013 to late 2014 when she left to take the position of Public Relations Director at the University of Maine at Machias.

Chamber President Josh Spencer said the Chamber members were pleased to have Mack back at the helm. “Sharon Mack was the reason I first got involved with the Chamber,” Spencer said. “ To me she is synonymous with it, so without her things felt sort of incomplete to me. I am beyond excited to have her back and to be able to work together once again moving forward. She is an invaluable asset.”

Under Mack’s direction, the Chamber relocated its offices to a more prominent site downtown and increased its hours of operation, reenergized the Chamber’s restoration of Station 1898, the town’s historic railroad station, initiated several community-building programs such as Box Car Box Office, which are free outdoor movies, a free outdoor ice skating rink, letters and calls from Santa Claus to local children, participated in First Friday Art Walks, created the Halloween Scarecrow Contest, fall Harvest Fair and Wine Tasting Festival. The Chamber also added informational packages for those new to the area, Eggs and Issues for local business leaders, a check in program for house bound seniors, and historical tours of downtown Machias.

Mack said she is “extremely pleased” to be back at the Chamber. “When I left this position, I truly felt we had just scratched the surface of the opportunities here,” she said. “I am so happy to be given the opportunity to continue all the good work we started and look forward. My personal saying has always been ‘A rising tide lifts all boats’ and by raising the quality of life for all those in the greater Machias Bay area, we can reenergize and grow this area economically. With the area’s beauty, history and quality of place, why wouldn’t companies invest in this area? It will be everyone’s job to make those connections and partnerships to bring vitality to greater Machias.”

Mack said she will have a double priority for the Chamber over the next year: to increase membership and to continue fundraising and grant seeking to allow the Chamber to move into Station 1898 and establish it as a business resource and tourist facility.

Beginning April 6, Mack will remain in her position at UMM as a contracted service provider, but the majority of her time will be with the Chamber. Mack is a graduate of the University of Hartford in Connecticut, was an award-winning journalist with the Bangor Daily News for 30 years, and lives in Machias. She has six children, seven grandchildren and a deep love for Washington County.
