Maine Science Olympiad
Alumni Group


Maine Science Olympiad is working to create a MSO Alumni Group. The group will be comprised of Science Olympiad alumni from across the state. We want to connect with alumni to see if they might be interested in volunteering or contributing in some other way to Maine’s STEM community. Alumni might assist at the state tournament by coordinating volunteers, serving as Supervisors for events, and aiding in other areas where the tournament needs support. The MSO Alumni Group also could provide assistance as mentors or coaches, present workshops for teams and coaches, and be instrumental in the development of new teams. More information about alumni groups can be found on the national alumni page at

https://www.soinc.org/officials/alumni as well as their Facebook page,

https://www.facebook.com/SOAlumniNetwork/ .

 

We’d appreciate your assistance in building an email list. If you know any MSO alumni or have any questions, please contact the State Director Pam Ferris-Olson at mescioly@gmail.com or MSO Alumni Group Director Mer Feero at feeromerline@gmail.com. We appreciate your commitment to Maine’s Science Olympiad!

 

Mer Feero, Director, MSO Alumni Group.
