The Coyote Battalion hosted the 3rd Annual Mogadishu Mile on October 3rd. The event is a fitness challenge that commemorates Operation Gothic Serpent that took place in Mogadishu Somalia on October 3-4, 1993 and the 19 service members who lost their lives that day. Cadets from UMaine ROTC, Bangor High School JROTC, Old Town High School JROTC, and Old Town High School faculty members accepted this year’s challenge, there were 34 participants in all. Medals were awarded to the top three male and female finishers. During this mission, Task Force Ranger comprised of 160 US Special Operations Forces conducted an operation to detain key leaders of the Somali National Alliance in order to reduce Mohamed Farrah Aidid’s grip on the war torn nation. Fierce fighting broke out as this elite force was surrounded by Habr Gidr militia and thousands of civilians. While ground forces moved to secure a downed Blackhawk helicopter a second Blackhawk, Super Six Four, piloted by Warrant Officer Michael Durant was also shot down. Friendly forces were unable to move to the second crash site and the surviving crew. In an act of selfless service, Delta Operators Master Sergeant Gary Gordon and Sergeant First Class Randy Shughart volunteered to be inserted into the crash site of Super Six Four. Upon arriving at the site they aided the crewmembers and established a perimeter to defend their position. Ultimately their position was overrun by hostile forces, and Warrant Officer Durant was the only survivor at the crash site. He was captured by the Somali’s, and held for 11 days before being released to U.S. forces. Master Sergeant Gordon and Sergeant First Class Shughart were posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for their heroic actions that saved the life of Warrant officer Durant, and represented the oath that they and their peers carried into battle that day. 1st Place Male – Dan Desmond (OTHS) 2nd Place Male – Colby Hatch (OTHS) 3rd Place Male – Garrett Engstrom (UMaine) 1st Place Female - Kristina Littlehales (UMaine) 2nd Place Female - Kerry Lefebrve (UMaine) 3rd Place Female – Eva Coombs (Bangor HS)

Congratulations to Mr. Ed Lindsey on earning October 2022 Staff of the Month - Voted on by the students!
It’s been a great day for RSU #34! This morning our grant application was approved for $70,000 in supplies to support Computer Science learning at all of our schools; this will support and expand our current coding and robotics efforts, and give us new capacities in virtual and augmented reality. Many thanks to our STEM specialists Mrs. Daniel and Mrs. Zabierek for their hard work in preparing the grant application. Our schools have been leading the way in robotics and coding since a 2012-era community fundraising effort! In addition to our in-school programming for all students, over the course of the past decade competitive robotics teams from LMS and OTHS have each earned their way to international competitions. Then at lunchtime, the Department of Education announced that RSU #34 is one of just four grantees statewide under the Community Schools program. This $50,000 grant will enable us to continue our existing community outreach efforts led by Mrs. Goodwin. Many thanks to her and Mrs. Wilcox for their hard work preparing that grant application. $120,000 total in grant awards is a great way to end a busy week!
