Garrett is a graduate of Stearns High School.  

The University of Maine System is requiring all new positions, including summer jobs, be approved and hired through the Hire Touch System. As a result, the Upward Bound program will accept applications through this portal but then will require finalists who are not college students to complete the Hire Touch process. We will discuss this process to candidates selected for an interview.
