News icon Virtual Welcome Celebration introduces 2020 Scholars to the Mitchell Institute

We were grateful to be able to welcome the newest Mitchell Scholars to the Mitchell Institute Family last Saturday, August 8, over Zoom. In normal times, this event would be held at the Wells Conference Center on the University of Maine’s campus in Orono; we were thrilled to still be able to connect with 67 members of this 2020 cohort.

These new Scholars heard from Senator Mitchell in a digital address, as well as Mitchell Institute staff members. They were able to connect with fellow Scholars from their campuses or regions, and learned about the wealth of resources and programs available to them as recipients of the Mitchell Scholarship. We look forward to helping them in their continuing journeys, through college and beyond.
