FAIRFIELD — Alex Bevier, Lawrence High School senior, has been selected to receive the 2016 Principal’s Award, according to a news release fromLHS Principal Mark Campbell. The award, sponsored by the Maine Principals’ Association, is given in recognition of a high school senior’s academic achievement and citizenship.

Bevier, the son of Louis and Catherine Bevier, has enrolled in and successfully completed advanced and honor classes in each of the four major content areas including successful completion of advance placement classes in calculus, statistics, biology, U.S. history, English language and composition. His academic preparation has afforded him the opportunity to complete Series and Multivariable Calculus, Foundations of Mechanics, and Foundations of Magnetism and Optics at Colby College.

In the summer of 2015, he completed a research internship in biochemistry under the supervision of Julie Millard, in the department of chemistry at Colby College.

Besides his studies in the four major content areas, Bevier has studied music and plays piano, clarinet, tuba and acoustic and electric guitar. His talents were showcased at Kennebec Valley Musical Festivals and All State Music Festival Band. He also performed with the Colby Brass Ensemble, Colby Symphony Orchestra and the Colby Wind Ensemble.

As president of the local chapter of the National Honor Society, he leads the way by volunteering at Common Street Arts after volunteering as a swim coach for youth at the Alfond Center.

Although undecided on the college to continue his studies, Bevier is interested in a program of study in the physical chemistry field.

Bevier, with other senior award winners and their principals, will attend an April 2 honors luncheon in Bangor.

Besides being presented with a plaque, he is eligible for scholarships in remembrance of service by Horace O. McGowan and Richard W. Tyler, former principals and executive directors of the association annually presented.
