Audrey Jordan, of Whitefield, a senior at Erskine Academy, has been selected to receive the 2017 Principal’s Award, Headmaster Michael McQuarrie announced. The award, sponsored by the Maine Principal’s Association, is given in recognition of a high school senior’s academic excellence, outstanding school citizenship, and leadership.
Jordan, a consistent high-honors student in a program with numerous Advanced Placement courses and Concurrent Enrollment classes with nearby colleges, has also accumulated hundreds of hours of valuable community service, many at the MaineGeneral Medical Center and St. Michael’s School, in Augusta.
“Audrey, an exemplary student and fine ambassador of Erskine Academy and young people in general, personifies the school’s core values of scholarship, leadership, stewardship and relationships, making her most deserving of this recognition,” noted Headmaster McQuarrie when making the award.
Jordan, McQuarrie, and other award winners and their principals will attend an honors luncheon at the Spectacular Event Center in Bangor on Saturday, April 1, at 12:30 p.m.
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; both were former Maine principals and executive directors of the association. Additionally, 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 that represents Maine’s school administrators.
