AUGUSTA, ME – A total of 427 students graduated from Kennebec Valley Community College (KVCC) May 16 during the College’s 45th Commencement Exercises at the Augusta Civic Center.

Maine Senator Angus S. King Jr. was keynote speaker for the event, which was attended by hundreds of family, friends, and fellow students.

Senator King was sworn in as Maine's first Independent United States Senator on January 3, 2013. He joins a long line of independent leaders from the State of Maine and is a steadfast believer in the need for greater bipartisan dialogue and relationship building among legislators.

In 1994, Senator King was elected Maine's 72nd Governor. During his two terms in the Blaine House, he focused on economic development and job creation, and also achieved significant reforms in education, mental health services, land conservation, environmental protection, and the delivery of state services. He was re-elected in 1998 by one of the largest margins in Maine's history.

“The Kennebec Valley Community College graduating class of 2015 is proof positive that hard work really does pay off,” said Senator King. “These impressive students have dedicated themselves to advancing their education while always rising to meet the next challenge. In today’s changing world, there is nothing more valuable than a good education – and thanks to their tireless efforts and the unwavering support of their teachers, friends, and community, these KVCC graduates have the ability to make bright futures for themselves and for the state of Maine.”

This farm is a work in progress.


people in field

We'll do our best not to bore you, but we're going to talk numbers. We're going to talk about how we make decisions, about what worked, and more importantly, what didn't work. We hope we can be a resource for students and farmers, for skeptics and city-folk alike; anyone, really, interested in what it looks like to build a farm from scratch.
