Many people struggle with acne, and it can have major impacts on self-esteem, particularly for teens during their vulnerable high school years. New research, however, suggests there might be a silver lining: Acne in high school is also a trait found among the nation's most successful individuals.

LEWISTON — Lewiston High School educational technician Megan Dumais’ position helping homeless students was on the chopping block until Monday night. For the first time in more than 10 years, the Maine Department of Education rejected Lewiston School Department’s annual application for federal funds to help students who are homeless or living on their own, Superintendent Bill Webster said.

School Department homeless coordinator Dan Sansoucy works with homeless students in grades K-12. At Webster’s recommendation, the School Committee on Monday night unanimously approved $35,000 to make up for the federal grant; $31,000 of it to cover Dumais’ position and $4,000 for student transportation. Webster said he was surprised to find out three weeks ago Lewiston did not receive the grant from the Maine Department of Education, which oversees … [Read more...] about Lewiston School Committee OKs money for homeless students
