Carmen E. Caterina of Topsham, a senior at Mt. Ararat High School, has been selected to receive the 2016 Principal’s Award.

The award, sponsored by the Maine Principals’ Association is given in recognition of a high school senior’s academic achievement and citizenship.

“Carmen has achieved academic excellence, modeled good citizenship, represented MTA as a student athlete, and served as a leader in our community,” while attending schools in School Administrative District 75, said Mt. Ararat High School Principal Donna Brunette. “Carmen’s active advocacy for programs that raise student awareness on topics such as substance abuse and civic engagement through the voting process have led to this honor.”

Caterina will attend an Honors Luncheon at the Spectacular Event Center in Bangor on Saturday with other award winners and administrators. The event recognizes these 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 Maine Principals’ Association. This year there will be additional scholarships 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.
