NORTH ANSON — Courtney Peabody, daughter of Robert and Carrie Peabody of Solon and a senior at Carrabec High School, is receiving the 2021 Principal’s Award, according to Principal Timothy Richards.

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

Peabody has distinguished herself in the classroom, on the court, in track and field, and as a leader in the school, according to Richards.

“She always has a smile on her face and has a positive attitude,” a school press release states. “Courtney is hard-working, kind, and humble, all of which will ensure her future success. Academically, Courtney has challenged herself throughout her high school years, where she has taken six dual enrollment classes, as well as three AP courses. Her hard work, perseverance and enthusiasm have made her a role model in our school.”

The press release also noted that Peabody “has not only thrived in the sports world, but is also a member of the National Honor Society, has been a member of the Willpower Weightlifting Team, Youth in Maine Government, and was February 2021 Student of the Month.”

Peabody can attend a live virtual event on May 14, where she will be eligible to be selected for one of 10 scholarships.
