Hannah Emery of Detroit, a senior at Maine Central Institute, has been selected to receive the 2014 Principal’s Award, Headmaster Christopher Hopkins has announced. The award, sponsored by the Maine Principals’ Association, is given in recognition of a high school senior’s academic achievement and school citizenship.
“During all four years of her time at Maine Central Institute Hannah has excelled academically and athletically and has been a leader in all areas of School life,” Hopkins noted in presenting the award to Emery. “Despite involvement in an extraordinary number of organizations and initiatives, she still always finds a way to put others before herself. It is her genuineness that is most impressive and what has caused her to affect School culture in such a profoundly positive way.”
Emery is one of the top ten students in her class. She has been a member of the soccer, outdoor track and basketball teams, serving as captain of all three sports both her junior and senior years. In addition, Emery played softball and was a member of the Captains Club. She is the co-founder of the Kindness Krew and was a member of the Student Leadership Committee, Key Club, College Aspirations Club and the Science Outing Club. Emery was also a member of the National Honor Society and served as secretary for both her class and the Student Council. She is the daughter of Bryan and Kristi Emery of Detroit.
Emery, Hopkins and other award winners and their principals will attend an Honors Luncheon at the Spectacular Event Center in Bangor on Saturday, April 5, 2014. 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. Mr. McGowan and Mr. Tyler were former Maine principals and executive directors of the Association.
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.
