Schenck High School Hall of Fame To Induct Six New Members
Schenck High School will be inducting six new members into its Hall of Fame on Saturday, July 9, 2022 at 12:30 in the Margaret Gillis Gymnasium. If you are in the area for the Summerfest Celebration, home for your Schenck class reunion, or just tired of being cooped up for the past two years due to Covid, you won’t want to miss this! It is free and you are certain to catch up with old friends, help celebrate the accomplishments of the people being inducted, and learn lots of interesting Schenck High School history! Bring your kids and let them hear the inspirational stories of Schenck graduates, faculty members and special contributors. Maybe the kids will go home thinking, “If they can do it, so can I!”
Lieutenant Colonel Jeremy Deveau’s story is truly inspirational! A highly decorated United States Marine Corps pilot, Jeremy flew 84 combat support missions during Operation Enduring Freedom and has flown over 3,400 as a Naval aviator. He is also one of the elite few chosen to pilot Marine One, the presidential helicopter, and has flown three United States Presidents!
Nearly everyone in the Katahdin Region knew Doctor Irvin Hamlin. He was the town doctor, the mill doctor and the school doctor for nearly 50 years. What people don’t know are the hardships that Doc overcame as a child on his way to becoming a doctor. Steve LeVasseur was a force on the basketball court, led his 1980 team to an undefeated Eastern Maine Championship and went on to star at Husson for four years. As a coach, Steve’s teams won an incredible 330 games and five state championships! Nancy Rowe is considered one of the finest music educators in the state of Maine! For 30 years, she had one of the premier music programs in the state at Camden Hills Regional High School. Nancy is also a renowned musician herself and has been the principal timpanist with the Bangor Symphony Orchestra for more than 40 years! Emmett Stevens came to Schenck in 1958 to teach commercial subjects. He started the cross country program that year and for the next 23 years, his teams dominated the Northern Penobscot region. The teams won 35 league and regional championships and three state championships! His son, Alan Stevens, came with Emmett and during the two years that he ran for Schenck, Alan won every regular season meet as well as the regionals. He won the state meet his junior year, placed second his senior year and is the only Schenck runner to ever win the state cross country meet!
As a special feature of this year’s induction ceremony, the 1961 cross country team will be honored. Five of the seven runners on that first cross country championship are still living and have been invited to attend. They are Steve Gavin, David Michaud, Danny Moore, Bob Osnoe and Randy Sweet. Rod Scott and Eddie Boss are deceased. In addition, six members of the back to back 1967 and 1968 state championship teams will also be recognized: Barry Brown, Maurice Daigle, Phil Day, Dan Nicholson, Ricky Spearrin and Rusty Taylor will be attending. Additionally, nearly all of Steve LeVasseur’s teammates from the 1980 undefeated Eastern Maine Championship team will be attending as well as players from each of Steve’s five championship teams. The Class of 1972 is celebrating its 50th Reunion and will be bringing a large contingent to the induction. Schenck Principal Justin Page has arranged to give them, as well as anyone else who is interested, a tour of the present day Schenck High School after the induction ceremony. The Hall of Fame committee encourages anyone who ran cross country for Coach Stevens or played basketball for Coach LeVasseur to join celebration! Come and hear the stories of all the inductees and re-connect with former teammates, classmates and old friends!
2022-2023 Preliminary ESEA Allocation
East Millinocket Schools accepts funding through the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965. As part of the ESEA, East Millinocket School Department is required to provide a reasonable opportunity for public comment on the ESEA consolidated application and consider such comment prior to the submission of the application. Our ESEA team, composed of a representative from all stakeholder groups, has been working to draft a proposal for ESEA funding for the 2022-2023 school year.
Our outline proposal is based on data gained throughout the school year and district, school, and ESEA goals. Our initial allocation in Title I funds for the 2022-2023 school year is $149,142.57. These funds will be used to pay for intervention teachers and ed techs to help our struggling learners in K-4, provide NWEA testing to monitor learning for K-4, purchase books and other learning materials for students, provide support for homeless learners, and provide an opportunity for parent involvement. Our Title II allocation for this year is $23,149.42. Potential projects will be related to professional development and educator effectiveness and pay for Reading Recovery training, traveling to workshops and conferences, book studies, and out of district meetings. The $13,997.59 allocation in Title IV funds will be used to provide academic enrichment, and student support programming. The Title V allocation, in the amount of $12,940.70, will support other title programs, classroom instruction, and college and work readiness.
An update with our final allocation will be shared on our website when that becomes available to us. Anyone who would like to review a draft of the application or provide comments on the application may do so by contacting the office at 746-3511 between now and Friday, July 22, 2022.
