Their steps range from celebrating employee completion of a degree or certification programs to creating a formal tuition payment program.  The Compact for Higher Education projects a need in Maine of 40,000 more workers with post high school training by 2019.  The Maine Employers’ Initiative is funded through a generous grant from the Lumina Foundation and is working in partnership with the Maine Compact for Higher Education and the Maine Community Foundation to increase the educational attainment levels of Maine’s workers.  The Maine Development Foundation is a private, non-profit organization that drives sustainable, long-term economic growth for Maine.  Pictured is Dr. Dottie Martin and Joseph Foley; Chair of the Compact for Higher Education Board of Directors and Laurie Lachance, President & CEO of Maine Development Foundation, next is the picture of  the 24 honored Maine Employers.
