This holiday season our JMG students have been hard at work, participating in many activities that give back to our community. These students have played a large role in raising money at the Hoops for Health tournament, baking food for concession, and running the concession during the tournament games. They have also organized several WA Friday jean and hat days to raise money for various community service projects. A JMG sponsored food drive for the local food pantry also took place while students collected toys for a local toy drive! Thank you to all who have been involved in these efforts to make the holidays brighter for those in our community.

WA celebrated the holiday season with an annual door decorating competition! Students and faculty have been busy transforming their doors into winter holiday masterpieces. The competition has been fierce! Door themes included favorite cartoon characters such as the grinch and peanuts. The student winners were announced on Thursday, December 15. Mrs. Carter's freshman and Ms. Witick's junior advisor groups took first place. These students will enjoy breakfast delivered to them on Tuesday, December 19. Faculty are anxiously waiting for their winner announcement scheduled to be next week!

On November 22, Dillon Preston, one of our culinary art students, received his Serve Safe Certification. This will give him an advantage when applying for jobs in the food industry, as it demonstrates his knowledge and understanding of safe food production procedures. He is the first WA student to receive this certification. Dillon currently works at Tom's Mini Mart in Machias, and looks forward to the opportunity to use his newly acquired certificate in the future. Dillon states, "I am very happy to have received this certification. It is a great step toward my future, as I plan on pursuing a degree and career in culinary arts."

Ms. Baker, the WA Culinary Arts teacher, shares, "I am very proud of Dillon and his accomplishment. This certification will open up a lot of doors for him in the future, and I am excited to have him as our first student to receive the Serve Safe Certification."

Congratulations Dillon on this accomplishment and we look forward to your future achievements!
