In late June, we announced the Class of 2023 Mitchell Scholars on our social media channels and website. It is, by far, the most joyful news we share with the world every year.
We also announced the 166 new Mitchell Scholarship recipients in a wave of press releases to newspapers large and small across Maine, so Scholars’ communities can share in the celebration. After all, news is still the first rough draft of history — and we’re certain that the Class of 2023 Mitchell Scholars, like Scholars before them, will make history.
ICYMI, here is a sampling of the stories about the 2023 Mitchell Scholars that appeared in newspapers statewide. (Click the newspaper masthead graphic to see the coverage.)
