CHINA — Caleb Tyler, of Palermo, a senior at Erskine, has been selected to receive the 2018 Principal’s Award, according to a news release from Erskine Academy Headmaster Michael McQuarrie.

The award, sponsored by the Maine Principals Association, is given in recognition of a high school senior’s academic excellence, outstanding school citizenship and leadership.

Tyler is a consistent high-honors student in a highly competitive academic program with numerous Advanced Placement and Concurrent Enrollment classes with nearby colleges. He received formal commendation from his teachers for excellence and outstanding achievement in the sciences, mathematics and social studies, and he is a standout athlete in both soccer and lacrosse.

“Caleb is esteemed by his teachers and peers, earning and enjoying universal acceptance in the school community. He is an exemplary student and fine ambassador of Erskine Academy and young people in general, and he personifies the school’s core values of scholarship, leadership, stewardship, and relationships,” said McQuarrie when making the award, according to the release.

Tyler, McQuarrie, and other award winners and their principals are invited to attend an honors luncheon April 7 at the Spectacular Event Center in Bangor.

The luncheon recognizes these 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; both were former Maine principals and executive directors of the association. Additionally, five $1,000 scholarships will be presented through the efforts of the MPA Scholarship Golf Tournament.

The Principal’s Award is presented in more than 100 Maine public and private high schools by member principals of the association, the professional association that represents Maine’s school administrators.
