News Center interviews 2021 Valedictorian, Salutatorian

News Center Maine interviewed University of Maine 2021 Valedictorian Bailey West and Salutatorian Drew Bennett. “So this summer, I’ll be at The Jackson Laboratory in Bar Harbor for their summer student program, conducting research and then in the fall I’ll be attending the John Hopkins University School of Medicine for their Ph.D. program in pathobiology,” West said. “Find an on-campus job, or an internship, or a club, or a volunteering activity. Find something else that can be your creative outlet that you can put some time into, it will help balance your life, for me, it’s volunteering with robotics and also running robotics clubs on campus, if I didn’t have that I don’t think I would have been able to be nearly as successful in school as I was,” Bennett said.
