The Annual Meeting of the Yarmouth Alumni Association will be held on Wednesday, May 23rd in the Flex Room (Room 415) at Yarmouth High School. All members of the YAA are welcome to attend.
Several YHS alumni/ae are running for Yarmouth town offices. Kate Barker Shub ’98, a former YAA Board member, is running for the School Committee. Andy Kittredge ’98 is running for Town Council. Andy served a three year term earlier, took a year off, and has decided to run again. Meghan Casey, the Latin teacher at YHS, is also running for Town Council.
YHS art teacher Holly Houston was named Art Teacher of the Year by the Maine Art Education Association at their meeting on April 27th. Holly will speak at the Portland Museum of Art next March during Youth Art Month, and also be honored in Boston at the National Art Education Association convention. At YHS she teaches print-making and ceramics.
This year Houston received a $2,600.00 grant from the Yarmouth Education Association to bring a local artist to YHS to work with her students. A graduate of Bowdoin, she worked at schools in Saco, Portland, and Falmouth for thirteen years before coming to YHS twelve years ago. An artist in her own right, Houston holds after-school sessions on Tuesdays, when students are welcome to work alongside her, working on their projects while she pursues her own.
