BRUNSWICK, Maine – Ushering in 2012, Mid Coast Hospital announced today the birth of the first baby of the new year: A girl, Violet Amelia Beardsley born to Joey-Lynne Beardsley and Michael Elias Beardsley of Brunswick, Maine, on January 2, 2012 at 12:07 a.m.

As one of the first of Maine’s babies born in Maine this year, Violet will be among the first 2012 babies eligible to receive the $500 Harold Alfond College Challenge grant (Alfond Grant) to start a NextGen College Investing Plan® account.  The Alfond Scholarship Foundation set up the grant program to help ensure access to higher education for all Maine’s children.  All Maine resident babies may receive the grant if they are enrolled in NextGen on or before their first birthday. There is no family income limit or requirement to contribute any of the family’s own money to receive the grant.

Prior to leaving the hospital, Violet’s parents will be provided with information about the Harold Alfond College Challenge and how to open a NextGen account. NextGen and the Harold Alfond College Challenge are administered by the Finance Authority of Maine (FAME).
