“Throughout his years at Winthrop High School, Chris has distinguished himself in the classroom, as a leader and mentor in our school, and as a leader in the community,” Principal Jay Dufour said in a news release.

Pottle has been involved in co-curriculars including WBUS, Outing Club, National Honors Society, and National Technical Honors Society. He has also served as a class officer, both as treasurer and vice president for the Class of 2024. Pottle has participated on Winthrop’s indoor, outdoor and cross-country teams. He was named the 2023 MVC cross-country runner of the year, is an MVC academic all-star, and a member of the 2023 Boy’s Indoor Track state championship team, according to Dufour.

“A student at Capital Area Technical Center in the building construction program, Chris recently won gold at the annual SkillsUSA competition for cabinet making, qualifying him for the national level competition. Academically, Chris is a highly motivated student, and will graduate in the top ten of his class. Outside of school, Chris volunteers his time in the community, serving as a volunteer running and track coach,” Dufour said.

Pottle, Dufour and other award winners and their principals plan to attend an Honors Luncheon at Jeff’s Catering on Saturday, April 6.
