News organizations covered Saturday’s graduation ceremonies at the University of Maine and profiled several graduating seniors, including triplets from Belfast who received UMaine degrees, and a student from Rockland who overcame homelessness and dire personal circumstances to graduate with high honors. The Chicago Tribune also published the latter article. Local TV stations airing features about students or the ceremonies included Channel 2 (WLBZ) and Channel 5 (WABI). Nearly 2,500 graduates received UMaine degrees.
