Vincent G. Scott has been selected by Winthrop High School faculty members to receive the 2018 Principal’s Award.

During his four years at the high school, Scott has maintained an excellent scholastic record while also participating in many co-curricular activities. He is a student who can be counted on in the classroom, on the playing field and as a student leader. He much deserves this recognition, according to a news release from the high school.

He is a very active young man, both in and outside of school. He has/is a member of several athletic teams: Boys soccer, cross country (senior captain), track & field (captain junior and senior year), and cross-country skiing (senior captain). He is a member of the Latin Club (president junior and senior year), Math Team, Student Council (treasurer senior year) National Honor Society (president senior year), the Drama Club, yearbook) and has been class president all four years.

Outside of school Scott serves as a church lector, a volunteer for Special Olympics and Relay for Life. He has also participated in the People to People program and was named a USA ambassador to Europe.

Scott plans to attend college in a four-year program pursuing a degree in biomedical engineering.

Scott and Principal Sara Landry plan to attend an MPA Honors Luncheon April 7 in Bangor where they will join other MPA Principals’ Award winners from across the state.

The 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.
