Congratulations to Molly Carroll from MDI High School who was named the HCTC Student of the Year.

Each year, the Maine Administrators for Career and Technical Education (MACTE) asks each Career and Technical Center throughout the state to select their top senior for the Student of the Year Award. At the Hancock County Technical Center, they select a senior who has demonstrated outstanding academic achievement in their program, great attendance, and who has outstanding commitment to the Career and Technical Center and plans to pursue their program in college. In addition the student has to be a top caliber student and person at their sending school. HCTC looks at overall achievement academically but also co-curricularly and how they have done representing the Career and Technical Center. HCTE wants an ambassador!

According to HCTC "Molly Carroll a second year Law Enforcement student from MDI HS has established herself as a class leader with morals and ethics that are second to none.  At HCTC, she has been honored as Student of the Month and is a member of the National Technical Honor Society.  In 2014, Molly earned a Gold Medal at SkillsUSA for her demonstration of handcuffing and searching in the Action Skills Competition.  At Nationals, she placed 9th in the country.  This year, at the 2015 competition, she repeated as Gold Medalist in the Action Skills Competition for her Forensic Casting Demonstration.  She will represent our state again at the National SkillsUSA competition in Louisville KY.  At MDIHS, Molly is a three sport varsity athlete competing in soccer, basketball and softball and has the third highest total of community service hours for the senior class.  At both MDI High School and HCTC, Molly always exudes good citizenship, class, and integrity.  Molly will be attending Thomas College in the fall to major in criminal justice and will play softball."
