FORT KENT, Maine — Governor Janet Mills recently nominated six people to the University of Maine System and Maine Community College System Boards of Trustees.

Among the nominees is Kelly A. Martin of Fort Kent, whom Mills reappointed to the UMS System board.

Martin has served on the board for two years. She has worked for Prudential for more than 25 years, and currently serves on Northern Maine Medical Center’s Physician Recruitment and Retention and Community Liaison committees.

“The Boards of Trustees for the University of Maine System and the Maine Community College System play a pivotal role in ensuring our state’s higher education institutions lead the nation in learning, research, and community engagement,” said Governor Mills.

“I am honored to nominate such experienced, qualified, and well-respected individuals who will steward the systems’ core missions and ensure our community colleges and public universities fulfill their responsibilities to students,” she said.

Mills also reappointed James O. Donnelly of Brewer and nominated Sven Bartholomew of Brewer to the UME board; reappointed former Rep. Jean Ginn Marvin of Scarborough and nominated former Sen. Joyce A. Maker of Calais to the MCCS board; and nominated former Congressman Michael H. Michaud of East Millinocket to both boards.
