SMHS Students Hike Cadillac Mountain

In celebration of the 100th anniversary of Acadia National Park, fifteen Sumner Memorial High School students and three teachers hiked Cadillac Mountain last Friday (April 29). The hikers started in the early morning hours, donning headlamps provided by our 21st Century Grant. They reached the top in time to watch the sunrise. The hikers enjoyed breakfast at Jordan’s after their adventure. The trip was sponsored by 21st Century and Student Voice. We admire their adventurous spirit!
