Jul 03, 2019
Former Worthington Scholar Rachel Johnson has been hired to work for the Worthington Foundation.

Rockland — Rachel Johnson, a 2015 graduate of Oceanside High School, May 2019 psychology graduate from the University of Maine, and Worthington Scholarship recipient, has joined the Worthington staff part-time as program assistant. In this capacity, she is assisting with scholar communications and support, events such as the scholar send-off barbecue at Point Lookout, and other duties.

The addition of Johnson occurs as the foundation grows in 2020 to add 23 new Maine high schools eligible to receive Worthington scholarships for their students, adding to the six now served. Current staff includes Rick Bedigian, executive director; Jay McIntire, program director and Kerry Hadley, college mentor and communications specialist.

During her time at UMaine, Johnson was involved with University Singers, volunteered hours as an undergraduate research assistant at the UMaine Peer Relations Lab, was an intake staff member at the UMaine Tutor Program, and was a Resident Assistant for one year.
