“I need to work to afford college, and I don’t want to leave Dover-Foxcroft to attend college away. The Penquis Higher Education Center in Dover-Foxcroft is the reason I am able to attend college. By staying here I am able to work with young children at a local child card facility — work directly related to my career goals — while going to school. The Penquis College Center has made it easy for me to pursue my goal of becoming an Infant/Toddler Teacher.”
