CHELSEA CROCKETT
RECEIVES PRINCIPAL’S AWARD

Nokomis Regional High, Principal, Mary Nadeau has announced Chelsea Crockett of Newport has been selected to receive the 2018 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.
Principal Nadeau says, “Chelsea is and has been a difference maker at Nokomis. Many may recognize Chelsea’s name from her outstanding athletic career but she has also demonstrated that same level of achievement and leadership in the classroom, clubs, and the hallways, too! Crockett matches her incredible work ethic with care and compassion for those around her. You can be assured that anything Chelsea is a part of will be a success; she’s a remarkable young adult.”
The Honors Luncheon was held at the Spectacular Event Center in Bangor. The Honors Luncheon recognizes 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.
Crockett was unable to attend the luncheon as she was participating in the Washington University Chemistry Tournament in St. Louis, Missouri. Principal Nadeau will formally recognize Crockett at Class Night on Thursday, June 7th. Crockett plans to continue her education at Bentley University in the fall.
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.
