BREWER – Nathan (Nate) Henry of Brewer, a senior at Brewer High School, has been selected to receive the 2019 Principal’s Award, Principal Brent Slowikowski announced today. The award, sponsored by the Maine Principals’ Association, is given to a high school senior in recognition of his/her academic achievement and citizenship.
“The Principal’s Award is based on academic excellence, outstanding school citizenship and leadership. Nate certainly hits each one of these marks and is simply a great member of our school community. Aside from his success in the classroom, Nate is active in athletics, service organizations, and other extra-curricular activities such as drama,” said Slowikowski. “Nate clearly understands what it means to be an active and involved citizen of Brewer High School, and he sets a great example for other students at our school. Nate is most deserving of this award.”
Henry and Slowikowski, along with other award winners and their principals from around the state, will attend an Honors Luncheon at the Jeff’s Catering in Brewer at 12:30 p.m. Saturday, April 6.
The Honors Luncheon recognizes these 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. McGown and Tyler were former Maine principals and executive directors of the association. This year an additional five $1,000 will be presented through the efforts of the MPA Scholarship Golf Tournament.
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.
