Not to toot our own horn, but we have some pretty awesome schools in our community. In fact, I would go out on a limb and say we have some of the best schools in the whole state. While many of us share that belief, it’s sometimes nice to get validation from those outside the area. Most recently it happened with an award given at Saco Middle School. This wasn’t just any award, this was national recognition and praise.
