MEDWAY – The first graduates of Maine’s new post-secondary training program for operators of mechanized logging equipment were recognized today at a ceremony held in the woods south of Medway where they have spent weeks harvesting timber using sophisticated state-of-the-art machines like those they will encounter in the logging industry.

Congrats to graduates Cody Dennison, Ben Tuttle, William Mazariego, Patrick Eastman, Samuel Shook, and Jason Durant.

The new program was launched this summer thanks to a partnership between the PLC, three Maine community colleges, and industry partners. Congratulations! Learn more here: maineloggers.com/first-graduates-complete-mechanized-logging-operations-program/
