Featured Image

The University of Maine at Fort Kent will host its twelfth annual Scholars’ Symposium on Wednesday, April 24th, on the UMFK campus. The theme of this year’s event is “One Health.” The symposium is open to the public.

“The UMFK Scholars’ Symposium (April 24, 8:30 am to 4 pm) is an annual celebration of student achievement and engagement where students have an opportunity to share their academic research through poster projects and presentations. At 11 am, invited keynote presenter Tristan Burgess (Center for Wildlife Studies) will speak to the One Health theme of the Symposium through his talk titled Spillover: How do we REALLY prevent pandemics?” said Dr. Kennedy “Ned” Rubert-Nason, UMFK assistant professor of chemistry and the Scholars’ Symposium chair.

Wednesday morning, the symposium will begin with a welcome from UMFK President Dr. Deb Hedeen at 8:30 a.m. in Fox Auditorium, followed by the undergraduate awards presented by Dr. Hedeen.

You will hear from UMFK faculty members, who will speak on “What is One Health and how can AI inform it?” Then, at 9 a.m., we will hear UMFK students’ research presentations.

Beginning at 11 a.m., keynote speaker Dr. Tristan Burgess will speak to the UMFK campus community at 11 a.m. in Fox.

Dr. Burgess is a co-founder, vice president for Science and Education, and assistant professor of Wildlife Health and Epidemiology at the Center for Wildlife Studies. He specializes in wildlife veterinary medicine and epidemiology, focusing on marine mammal health and emerging pandemic threats. He received his Bachelor of Veterinary Science from Massey University and a Ph.D. in Wildlife Epidemiology from UC Davis. Widely published, Dr. Burgess’ research interests concern the impacts of environmental health and disease on wildlife conservation efforts, the effects of disease on ecosystems, and the intersection of behavioral/foraging ecology and wildlife health. A question and answer session will follow his presentation.

The afternoon continues to highlight students’ research with poster sessions and presentations, and the students will answer questions about their methodologies and findings at the Sports Center from 1:00 pm to 4 p.m.

UMFK offers multiple degree paths, which lead to associate, bachelor, and master’s degrees. For a complete program listing and more information, please visit the UMFK website at umfk.edu.

The University of Maine at Fort Kent is pleased to announce that author Kathryn Olmstead will be the Commencement speaker for the 142nd commencement ceremony held at the UMFK Sports Center on May 4, 2024.

Kathryn was presented with the honorary degree of Doctor of Humane Letters at UMFK’s 139th Commencement Ceremony on May 8, 2021.

“We are honored to have Ms. Olmstead speak at our celebration,” said UMFK President and Provost Dr. Deb Hedeen. Due to the pandemic, the 2021 commencement ceremony was online, and so was Kathryn’s commencement speech. We are pleased that she will serve as the commencement speaker this year and will have the opportunity to address the graduates in person.”

Kathryn Olmstead, Associate Professor Emerita of Communication and Journalism at the University of Maine, served 25 years on their journalism faculty, the last six as associate dean in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. She is currently a writer and editor living in Caribou, Maine. A native of Battle Creek, Michigan, she earned a BA in English from the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana, and an MA in English and Education from the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

She moved to an abandoned farm in Westmanland in 1974 after teaching high school English in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, and Concord, New Hampshire, where she and her husband directed a residential college preparatory program for minority students. In 1988, she co-founded Echoes: Rediscovering Community, a quarterly magazine celebrating the quality of life in Aroostook County, which she later published from her home in Caribou until 2017.

She is the author of True North: Finding the Essence of Aroostook and the editor of Stories of Aroostook: The Best of Echoes Magazine, both published in 2020. She also wrote a biweekly column about northern Maine for the Bangor Daily News and co-authored a WWII memoir, Flight to Freedom: World War II Through the Eyes of a Child, with Philomena Baker, who began her career as a photographer in Fort Kent, Maine, in the 1950s.

Before joining the UMaine faculty in 1984, she served as regional representative for Senator Bill Cohen in Presque Isle, edited the weekly Aroostook Republican and News in Caribou, and was a correspondent for the Bangor Daily News and two agricultural newspapers based in Vermont and Kansas. She also taught journalism and photography at UMS campuses in Fort Kent and Presque Isle.

Founder of the Maine Center for Student Journalism for high school journalists in 1993, she received the UMaine Presidential Public Service Award in 2009 and was inducted into the Maine Press Association Hall of Fame in 2018.

She serves on boards of the Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance, the Natural Resources Council of Maine, the Penobscot Theatre Company, and the Caribou Public Library. She lives, writes, and skis in Caribou, Maine.

Seeking Hall of Fame Nominations

Featured Image

The University of Maine at Fort Kent Athletic Hall of Fame Committee is seeking nominations of individual student-athletes, teams, coaches, and administrators for induction into the University’s Athletic Hall of Fame.

Nominations will be accepted through Friday, April 19, 2024. The induction ceremony will be held during UMFK’s Homecoming weekend in September.

The UMFK Athletic Hall of Fame was established to recognize the men and women who have distinguished themselves in the field of athletics by their performance on UMFK athletic teams, through their achievements after graduation from the University, or by their efforts on behalf of UMFK Athletics.

Nominations will be accepted in the following categories: athlete, team, coach/administrator, and special inductee.

Any alumni or friend of UMFK may submit a nomination for consideration by a 15-member selection committee, which consists of students, athletes, coaches, faculty, administrators, and alums of the University. Nominees must receive at least 70 percent of the selection committee’s vote to be eligible for induction into the UMFK Athletic Hall of Fame.

A complete list of the eligibility requirements, the selection process for inclusion in the Athletic Hall of Fame, and an online official nomination form are located on the UMFK Athletics website.

Nomination forms may be obtained on the UMFK campus at the Athletics Department (Sports Center).

Art 200 Student Exhibit

Featured Image

Artworks of Doug Clapp's Art 200 course on display in Blake Library GalleryThe University of Maine at Fort Kent Blake Library Gallery is currently featuring the works of students in Doug Clapp’s ART 200 Fundamentals of Art – Drawing class. The exhibit will be on display during the month of March.

The course introduces students to the basic concepts of drawing. The class also encourages students to think about and come to understand two major things; first, there are so many different drawing styles when you consider the thousands of famous artists who created drawings that there has to be at least one style that you could successfully use, and second, that drawing is a form of creating, expressing, and communicating where form follows function; what are you trying to do when you draw? Are you trying to capture visually something that interests you? Are you making a plan for a more elaborate artwork? Are you trying to create a finished, stand-alone work of art using some drawing medium?

With those ideas in place, the class work consisted of learning something about a specific artist or group of artists and how, what, and why they drew, exploring different drawing mediums and their strengths and weaknesses.

“Students that chose to take the course were reminded that, as an intro course, no prior skill at drawing was necessary and that success would depend on their individual growth, not on some perceived standard of drawing skill,” said Clapp. “When Sophia Birden approached me about an exhibition of student work in Blake Library, I enthusiastically agreed that it was a great idea. I planned for it to represent a sampling of work from all of them and from across the semester’s work.”

The exhibition can be viewed during library hours. For further information, please contact Gallery Curator Sofia Birden at (207) 834-7527.

Seeing our students forge relationships with people and businesses in a fun, unique way is special for everyone.”

The UMFK Foundation financially supports scholarships, special academic projects, and more that are not budgeted in the University’s annual operating budget. This important work assists the University in providing students access to opportunities to ensure they reach their full potential.

UMFK Bengal Executives

UMFK Bengal Executives left to right: Daniel Franz, Anna Mclaughlin, Alexis Violette, and Georgia Burton.

The University of Maine at Fort Kent has recently launched the Bengal Executives initiative, designed to help students direct their futures through experiential learning opportunities such as micro internships with employer partners, pre-professional trainings, career exposure, student support and leadership, and network development.

The program is funded through the University of Maine System TRANSFORMS Student Success and Retention Initiative — Pathways to Careers and the Maine Recovery & Jobs Plan.

According to Tammy Delisle, the Career Services Coordinator at UMFK, “Building this program has been so much fun, and I am very passionate about it. These students are amazing and one hundred percent invested.”

Participating in the Bengal Executives program is a competitive process. The first four Bengal Executives — Daniel Franz, Anna Mclaughlin, Georgia Burton, and Alexis Violette — were selected from a group who applied and interviewed for their positions.

Alexis Violette is a Behavioral Science major with a minor in Criminal Justice and is slated to graduate in 2025. She has been able to participate in and be a part of the Momentum Aroostook conference, which allowed her to network with many business owners and company organizations across the county. She was also able to work with Fish River Rural Health on a survey of the local community.

“The Bengal Executives program has enhanced my knowledge in professionalism while stepping outside of my comfort zone and has allowed me to meet new people,” said Violette, “Since starting with the Bengal Executives program, I have both grown my resume and expanded my skills.”

Daniel Franz, an international student from Germany, has enjoyed the additional exposure to marketing professionals that the program has provided. He has worked with the Fort Kent Outdoor Center and the United States Biathlon Association to develop a promotional video to promote U.S. Biathlon National Championships and the inaugural U.S. Biathlon Collegiate National Championships that will take place in Fort Kent March 21-24.

“I would say the biggest enhancement to my education that the Bengal Executives program has given me is exposure to leadership and teamwork,” said Franz, “In working closely with the U.S. Biathlon Association marketing team, I have had a deeper look into the world of marketing and how things are being approached. This is huge, and I’m so proud to be part of it.”

As to the future of the program, funding has been secured for three years, but organizers are hopeful.

“I have been working with a UMS steering committee and we will be working on gathering assessment data to highlight the impact of the project,” Delisle said.

Currently, the four current Bengal Executives have planned and are conducting a Career Boot Camp for eight participating students. From this group, four more executives will be selected.

“This program helped me understand how the world works after college,” said Franz, “It’s like a preview for the work ahead.”
