Local Impact • Sherry Ashby, Pottery Student

Sherry grew up in Lubec with the idea of making pottery on her childhood bucket list. Without access to a pottery studio or instruction, however, the pottery she crafted with the beach clay she collected always dried and fell apart. To make her childhood dream come true and to enhance her son’s homeschool experience, she applied for and received a scholarship from CCLC that allowed Sherry and her family their first opportunity to take a pottery course.

When asked about the local impact of CCLC, she said, “So many of us in this region are lifelong learners and CCLC provides the opportunity to expand and enrich that tendency by providing a richness and diversity of educational options to choose from.”
