OOB senior receives Principal’s Award
Carolyn Graves, a senior at Old Orchard Beach High School, was selected to receive the 2017 MPA Principal’s Award, Regional School Unit 23 Superintendent of Schools and Old Orchard Beach High School Principal John Suttie announced. The award, sponsored by the Maine Principals’ Association, is given in recognition of a high school senior’s academic achievement and citizenship.
“Throughout her years at Old Orchard Beach High, Carolyn has distinguished herself in the classroom, and as a leader in the school and in the community,” Suttie said in announcing the award. “She very much deserves this recognition.”
Graves, Suttie, other award winners and their principals attended an honors luncheon April 8.
The honors luncheon recognizes these outstanding students with the presentation of an individual plaque and the awarding of five $1,000 scholarships in the names of Horace O. McGowan and Richard W. Tyler. McGowan and Tyler were former Maine principals and executive directors of the association. This year an additional five $1,000 scholarships will be presented through the efforts of the MPA Scholarship Golf Tournament.
The Principal’s Award is presented in more than 100 Maine public and private high schools by member principals of the MPA, the professional association which represents Maine’s school administrators.
