FARMINGTON — Kayla White, a senior at Mt. Blue High School, has been selected to receive the 2018 Principal’s Award, Principal Monique Poulin has announced. The award, sponsored by the Maine Principals’ Association, is given in recognition of a high school senior’s academic achievement and citizenship.

White is certainly deserving of this award due to her dedication to her studies, her leadership and her involvement in extracurricular offerings and opportunities at Mt. Blue High School, Poulin said. White has challenged herself with honors and Advanced Placement courses and currently holds the top ranking in her class.

She has been a cross-country runner and a Nordic skier throughout her high school career and was one of the captains of her ski team this winter. She is also involved in other leadership roles in the school, holding positions as a class officer and a Student Council member.

In addition, White is president of the National Honor Society and leads its members in volunteer opportunities throughout the year. In addition to her academic, athletic and leadership roles, she is a musician who participates in the Franklin County Fiddlers and is a member of the Tri-M Music Honor Society.

White, Poulin and other award winners and their principals will attend an Honors Luncheon at the Spectacular Event Center in Bangor on April 7.

The Honors Luncheon recognizes the outstanding 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. An additional five $1,000 scholarships will be presented through the efforts of the MPA Scholarship Golf Tournament.
