Willie Grenier '66
I graduated from University of Maine at Farmington in 1970 and got my Master's of Education at the UMO in 1992.
My wife and I have been married for 48 years. By the way, she's a John Baptist graduate. We have a daughter and a son. My daughter has two lovely girls; my son has a boy and a girl.
I taught at Clinton Elementary School for 35 years, grades four though seven but spent most of my time at the sixth grade level teaching a self-contained classroom.
When I retired from teaching, I worked a couple of years with a cabinetmaker, then worked with special needs students for another few years.
I have spent a lot of my time doing volunteer work. For over ten years I've worked with veterans teaching fly-fishing skills and also taking them fishing. I've also worked with children teaching fly-fishing skills though out central Maine.
For the last 14 years I have taught at the Maine Trout Unlimited trout camp in Solon, Maine. I was the director for the last five years.
I have been very concerned with our environment and have been giving presentations throughout Central Maine on the Kennebec River watershed.
