Old Town: General Lewellyn Garrish Estes

The Old Town High School Army Junior ROTC program has utilized the Congressional Medal of Honor Project as a Service Learning Project. Under the guidance of Lieutenant Colonel Amedeo J. Lauria, the class of 15 cadets created a project in the spring of 2008 which included a:

  • Microsoft PowerPoint presentation that they presented in late March 2008 at the Service Learning Summit held at the University of Southern Maine in Gorham;
  • A lithograph drawing of the recipient's cited battle created by Rosemary Parks, a Korean exchange student;
  • An appearance on the Ray and Ted morning show on WLOB to speak about their project;
  • An exhibit displayed at the Service learning Summit and at Old Town High School.

The project completion phase will take place in the 2008-09 school year. Ms. M. Surette, a current senior, is now doing the follow-up as the program's Service Learning Officer.
