“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. She credits her guidance counselor, Stephanie Doyle, with connecting her to this prestigious opportunity. 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.

What a great podcast! I have an idea for another podcast guest….
The college application process is even more complicated and overwhelming for first-generation college-bound students. Would you be interested in discussing technology that helps first-generation college students navigate the college application process allowing students to build skills, knowledge, and plans for the future? Additionally, the technology enables them to navigate the standardized testing process and gives them options to pay for college with local scholarship options available to them.
Let me know if you would like to host a school counselor from a diverse school district to discuss how they assist first-gen college students and we could invite the CEO, Matt McQuillen from Xello to join as well. Looking forward to hearing from you!
