Annual UMaine Bookstore Ornaments Available

The University Bookstore at UMaine has selected the Orono Student Nurses’ Association (OSNA) as the 2012 recipient of proceeds from the annual commemorative holiday ornament sale. OSNA is a pre-professional organization for nursing students at UMaine that offers a strong mentorship program essential in the progression from a student to a professional nurse, according to Keven Higgins, associate director of the University Bookstore. The ornament sale — this year a depiction of the UMaine Black Bear statue near Memorial Gym — is intended to benefit a university student organization that works to help others in the community. “The students in these organizations like OSNA dedicate their energy and talent to making a difference,” Higgins says. “The University Bookstore is honored to recognize their important work through the ornament program. We are a student-focused organization, and this initiative is a special way that we can give back. And to celebrate the 10th year anniversary of this program just shows how special it is.”
