NORTH ANSON—John Layman, son of Laura and Eric Layman of Solon, a Carrabec High School senior, has been selected to receive the 2014 Principal’s Award, according to Principal Dr. Regina Campbell. The award, sponsored by the Maine Principals’ Association, is given in recognition of a high school senior’s academic achievement and citizenship.

According to Campbell in a release, Layman excels in many areas both at Carrabec High School and in the community. He is an honor roll student, a National Honor Society member, and class president. His civic affiliations include volunteering in the Carrabec High School Life Skills Program, Solon Recreation Program and St. Peter’s Church, to name a few. He is also a captain of the three sports he participates, soccer, basketball and track and field. This young man is a positive role model for the students at Carrabec and is widely respected by his teachers and peers.

As mentioned at the Student of the Month Assembly, Campbell said “Those of us lucky enough to catch this student in our sights use descriptions like humble, hardworking, thoughtful and polite beyond his years, the quintessence of character development. This student often racks up more community service hours in a day or two than many students rack up in a year.”

Layman will attend an awards luncheon on April 5 where he will receive his award and be eligible to be selected for one of five scholarships.
