Searsport High School Students Discuss Moving Stories of Maine Veterans

Penobscot Marine Museum’s Douglas and Margaret Carver Memorial Art Gallery 11 Church St., Searsport, United States

This winter five Searsport District High School seniors, Connor Fraser, Dylon Grant, Kevin Keniston, Anthony Powers, and Bartley Santos, curated an exhibit, Memoirs of War: A Soldier’s Seabag, which opened this spring at the Penobscot Marine Museum. Working with PMM assistant curator Cipperly Good and SDHS teacher Kathleen Jenkins, the students chose objects from Penobscot Marine Museum’s collection, researched the objects, researched the wars, and interviewed Maine veterans about their war experiences. Using objects the veterans took with them to war and objects they brought back home, this exhibit tells the story of ten Maine veterans’ wartime experiences from WW II to the present. On Wednesday, June 17, 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm, the students, two of whom are joining the Army National Guard this summer, will share with the public the moving stories they discovered while curating the exhibit.
