Cody Chretien of Plymouth, a senior at Nokomis Regional High School in Newport, has received the 2022 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 commented, “Cody has been a prominent member of our school community through his involvement in school athletics and activities. Throughout his tenure at Nokomis he has presented a positive attitude, provided solid leadership and demonstrated a strong work ethic. What I particularly appreciate about Cody is how he balances being very focused on his goals while keeping it a priority to be supportive of those around him. He’s a genuinely kind person who others respect, admire, and value his friendship.”

Next fall Chretien plans to attend the University of Southern Maine, majoring in the medical field.

Chretien, Nadeau and other award winners and their principals participated in a live virtual scholarship drawing event April 1.

Ten $1,000 scholarships were drawn in the names of former Maine principals and MPA Executive Directors: Horace O. McGowan, Richard W. Tyler, and Richard A. Durost.

The Principal’s 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.
