NORTH ANSON — Brandon Dixon, a Carrabec High School senior, has been selected to receive the 2016 Principal’s Award, according to news release from CHS 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.

Dixon excels in many areas both at Carrabec High School and in the community. Dixon, the valedictorian at Carrabec High School this year, is a student who stands far above his peers, both personally and academically. His enthusiasm for learning, his pure zest for life, his inquisitive mind, and his hard-working kind and engaged spirit will ensure his future success, both as a student in college and as a member of society, Campbell said in the release.

Academically, Dixon has challenged himself throughout his high school years by taking seven advanced placement courses and all the honors classes that would fit in his schedule, tech trades and performing arts, while remaining above his peers as first in his class with a 98.6 grade-point average. The amazing thing about Dixon is his exceptional passion for education as he takes on the most crucial coursework, like AB and BC calculus, AP biology, and AP literature and language. His academic energy is unbounded and his eagerness and gusto make him the number one leader in this school in so many ways. His thoughtfulness and kindness only accentuate his greatness, according to the release.

Dixon also shines strongly in sports at CHS as he applies that same enthusiasm and passion into the varsity track and soccer teams, captain of both for the last three years. Fast, strong, focused and intense, Dixon has been our MVC All Star in three separate categories. He is a supportive team player because he holds and shows respect for all his teammates and coaches. There is no one who tries harder than Brandon Dixon, Campbell said in the release.

Dixon has many academic awards, but whether it is treasurer of the class, National Honor Society, Student of the Month, or Math Team, be assured that Dixon leads every step of the way. His community service is also exemplary and proves how hard he works for others. From introducing “bee gourds” to working for the Maine Forestry Department, to volunteering at local church dinners, Dixon works hard to make his community a better place, Campbell said in the release.

Dixon will attend an awards luncheon on April 2 where he will receive his award and be eligible to be selected for one of five scholarships.
