Malachi Lowery of Vassalboro, a senior at Erskine Academy, has been selected to receive the 2023 Principal’s Award.

The award, sponsored by the Maine Principals’ Association, recognizes a high school senior’s academic excellence, outstanding school citizenship, and leadership.

Lowery is a consistent high honors student in a highly competitive academic program that includes all classes taken at the honors or accelerated level and numerous Advanced Placement and Concurrent Enrollment courses with nearby colleges, according to a news release from Headmaster Michael McQuarrie.

He has received recognition and accolades from within and outside the school for his standout accomplishments in the classroom, athletics (including KVAC All-Academic for soccer), and voluntary community service (exceeding 200 hours).

Lowery has been awarded for outstanding achievement in physical education, advanced mathematics, physics and United States history, and is the valedictorian for Erskine Academy’s class of 2023.

“Malachi enjoys universal acceptance and respect of the school community. He is an exemplary student, school and community citizen, and a fine representative of Erskine Academy and young people. Malachi personifies the school’s core values of scholarship, leadership, stewardship and relationships,” noted McQuarrie.

Lowery, McQuarrie, and other award winners and their principals plan to attend an honors luncheon Saturday, April 1, at Jeff’s Catering. The event recognizes outstanding students by presenting a plaque and awarding 10 $1,000 scholarships 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 representing Maine’s school administrators.
