Cheyenne Marie Smith is Mid Coast Hospital's First Baby of the New Year

Mid Coast Hospital is pleased to introduce its first baby of 2013. Cheyenne Marie Smith was born at 12:03 p.m. on January 1, 2013, to Sondra and Nicholas Smith of Bowdoin, Maine.

As one of the first of Maine’s babies born in 2013, Cheyenne will be one of the first 2013 babies eligible for the Harold Alfond* College Challenge to receive a $500 grant to start a NextGen College Investing Plan* account. Beloved philanthropist Harold Alfond’s Alfond Scholarship Foundation set up the program to ensure access to higher education for all Maine’s children. All Maine resident babies can receive the grant if they are enrolled on or before their first birthday. There is no income limit or need to contribute any money to receive the grant.
