Devyn DeLeonardis receives Principal’s Award

Devyn DeLeonardis

Devyn DeLeonardis, son of Frederick and Amanda, of North Anson, a senior at Carrabec High School, in North Anson, has been selected to receive the 2024 Principal’s Award, according to Principal Peter Campbell. The award, sponsored by the Maine Principals’ Associa­tion, is given in recognition of a high school senior’s academic achievement, citizenship and leadership.

DeLeonardis has distinguished himself in the classroom.  He has challenged himself and through his hard work and perseverance has made him one of the top students in the class of 2024.  Devyn is a member of the National Honor Society and was selected as the first student to represent his class as Student of the Month.

It is in the areas of citizenship and leadership that Devyn DeLeonardis truly excels.  His eagerness and enthusiasm make him a leader and a role model in our school.  This year Devyn achieved a feat that very few manage.  He earned the rank of Eagle Scout, a rank that only about 5 percent of all scouts manage to obtain.  Devyn has more than doubled the required number of community service hours required to graduate.  To exemplify that, he was quick to present his thoughts on how students could earn more hours of service by helping individuals affected by the recent flood.

For all of these reasons, Mr. Campbell is proud to announce that Devyn DeLeonardis is the Carrabec High School MPA Award recipient for 2024. Devyn will attend an awards luncheon on April 6, 2024, where he will receive his award and be eligible to be selected for one of ten scholarships.

Devyn Deleonardis earns scouting’s Eagle rank

The First Congregational Church of North Anson was alive with activity on Saturday, December 16, as family, friends, and fellow Scouts joined to witness the pinning of Scouting’s highest rank on Devyn Deleonardis.

Devyn is the son of Frederick and Amanda Deleonardis and lives in North Anson where he attends Carrabec High School.

He will be turning 18 in January and his time as a youth member of Scouting will come to a close. It is fitting that he received the Eagle Scout award before becoming an adult leader with Troop #481. Devyn is no stranger to leadership. As part of his Eagle Scout project, he led others in building and distributing little lending libraries to five area communities. In Scout Troop #481, Devyn has served as Senior Patrol Leader and Chaplain Aide. “Some ways that I have demonstrated leadership skills other than my Eagle project, Community Libraries, are when I taught the clove hitch knot to guests at the Community Literacy event; helped Solon Elementary School’s field day event by teaching the students a game and led them through it as they played; and when I wrote and gave a speech for the position of Student Council member.”

Devyn chose to have his Eagle Scout ceremony at his church because of his strong personal faith. “I believe that my life purpose,” he explained in his Life Ambition Statement that was presented along with his Eagle Scout application, “is to spread the news of Jesus, to follow him, and to help others any way that I can.” During the ceremony, Devyn presented Mentor Pins to two of his Scout leaders, his parents and to Pastor Dave Walz. Pastor Walz praised Scouting during the ceremony saying, “Bless the Scouts and bless all who seek to serve and be servants to others.”

Devyn received congratulatory notes from the members of Maine’s Congressional Delegation, State Representative Larry Dunphy and the Boy Scouts of America. Alfred McKay, Commander of the American Legion Department of Maine, presented Devyn with an actual Eagle feather. The Legion had to receive official permission from the US Fish and Wildlife Service to present the feather as the Eagle is a protected species. In fact, both bald eagles and golden eagles are protected by the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act and the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.

Devyn plans to attend the University of Maine Farmington next Fall and study to become a teacher.
