Chamberland earns Wisdom Principal’s Award

ST. AGATHA, Maine — Emma Chamberland of St. Agatha, a senior at Wisdom Middle/High School, has been selected to receive the 2021 MPA Principal’s Award, Principal Ralph Fantasia announced.  

The award, sponsored by the Maine Principals’ Association, is given in recognition of a high school senior’s academic achievement and citizenship.

  During her four years at Wisdom, Chamberland has taken part in many extracurricular activities, including the National Honor Society (serving as president since 2020), Student Council, Athletic Club, and serving as a peer tutor.  

She has been a leader in athletics, playing soccer, basketball, volleyball, and softball each year, including playing on the varsity soccer, basketball and volleyball teams in her 8th grade year.  She was named to the 2020 All-Aroostook team in soccer as a goalkeeper, leading Wisdom to the Aroostook League Division II title.

Additionally, she has been her class president the last two years, and served as a student member on the  SADS 33 Board of Directors in 2020-21.  

“Emma has consistently been one of Wisdom’s top school citizens.  She is one of the top-ranked students in her class, and has been an example of positive school leadership during her time at Wisdom,” Fantasia said.  

Outside of school, Chamberland has served as an assistant with the St. Agatha Recreation Department since 2019. After graduation, she will attend the University of Maine at Fort Kent in the fall to study education.

  Chamberland and Fantasia will be invited to participate in the MPA Principal’s Award live Virtual Scholarship Drawing on Friday, May 14, along with other award winners throughout the state, where there will be drawings held for ten $1,000 scholarships.
