The University of Maine at Fort Kent has announced its 2020 spring semester dean’s list. This list includes full-time and part-time students.

“The primary measure of success at a university is grade point average. In order to earn the 3.2 grade point average necessary to be included on the UMFK dean’s list, a student must demonstrate intellect, commitment, good study habits, and perseverance,” said Dr. Tex Boggs, Interim President and Provost, according to a news release from the college. “During the 2020 spring semester, 320 full-time students demonstrated all of those attributes. An additional 202 part-time students demonstrated those same attributes by earning the 3.2 grade point average necessary to be included on the UMFK Academic Recognition List.”

UMFK, situated at the center of Acadian history and culture in Maine, is a vital resource to the St. John Valley communities. The regional baccalaureate university within the University of Maine System serves more than 1,300 students.

The community of Fort Kent has a population of more than 4,000 and is situated in the St. John River Valley. The people of the valley are largely descended from the French-Acadians and French-Canadians.
