“Bring Back the Trades” will help me get into Maine School of Masonry, which in return will expand my knowledge in my trade. By attending this school, I will get closer to achieving my goal of becoming a restoration stone mason and bringing light to the art of stone masonry.

- Kaitlin Galbraith

It wasn't until I found the trades did I enjoy school. I took a culinary class, a welding class, and finally an automotive class. This is where I found the joy in education. 

- Connor Hopley

I feel that promoting the trades is an important aspect of the world that is being forgotten by most high school students. This is why I believe that I am a strong candidate for this scholarship as each dollar will help me towards a successful career and a happy life doing what I love.

- Connor Fleming

I will be able to put this money towards school and then once I graduate trade school I can use my education to help out not only my family, but the community as a whole and make a good and lasting reputation for myself.
