People & Places – Scott Shaw
CHERRYFIELD, ME — I am the Downeast Campus Facilities Manager and the Housing Rehabilitation Manager, and I joined the Mission in 2003.
The older housing stock in Washington County has always been challenging for families to maintain. With the help of hundreds of amazing volunteers every normal, non-Covid year, we assist with needed repairs so families can rest assured their homes are safe. I have been lucky enough to be a part of this work, and to see the tremendous difference it makes to our community.
My favorite place — besides enjoying my family — would be out on my bike exploring areas of the State I’ve never seen. Maine is a large, beautiful State and there are so many endless backroads and vistas to enjoy. I call the ride “wind therapy” — and it truly is. Maine will always hold a very special place in my heart.
