“You're the one who's driving the ship and figuring out what's gonna be best for you.”
— Stephanie Doyle
Co-host Margarida Celestino graduated from Casco Bay with a full-ride Questbridge Scholarship.

In this episode, Stephanie, Margarida, and Katherine Plog Martinez explore Stephanie’s role at Casco Bay as a member of the Student Support Team, crew advisor, and counselor. Their discussion continues to emphasize the importance of relationships - with students and between adults - and explores how Stephanie meets students where they are (both during and after their time at Casco Bay) to support them in shaping their own goals and future direction.
