Janet Mills, a native of Farmington. “UMF is a leader of education, which makes it a critical component for the state’s public school system. We want these UMF students to know that we appreciate – whether they are majoring in education or not – those who choose to continue their schooling here. And we hope they choose to live and work in Maine once they graduate and start their own careers.”
