Chelsea Crockett, of Newport, a senior at Nokomis Regional High School, recently received the 2018 Principal’s Award, according to a news release from Principal Mary Nadeau. The award, sponsored by the Maine Principals’ Association, is given in recognition of a high school senior’s academic achievement and citizenship.

Nadeau said, “Chelsea is and has been a difference maker at Nokomis. Many may recognize Chelsea’s name from her outstanding athletic career but she has also demonstrated that same level of achievement and leadership in the classroom, clubs, and the hallways, too! Crockett matches her incredible work ethic with care and compassion for those around her. You can be assured that anything Chelsea is a part of will be a success; she’s a remarkable young adult,” in the release.

The honors luncheon was held April 2 at the Spectacular Event Center in Bangor. The luncheon recognized the 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. McGowan and Tyler were former Maine principals and executive directors of the association.

Crockett was unable to attend the luncheon as she was participating in the Washington University Chemistry Tournament in St. Louis, Missouri. Nadeau will formally recognize Crockett on June 7 during Class Night. Crockett plans to continue her education at Bentley University in Waltham, Massachusetts, in the fall.

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