Martin receives FK Principal’s Award

FORT KENT, Maine — Nancy Martin of Fort Kent, a senior at Fort Kent Community High School, has been selected to receive the 2022 Principal’s Award, Principal John Kaleta announced.  

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

Nancy is the daughter of Stacy and Taylor Martin of Fort Kent.

 “Throughout her four years at FKCHS, Nancy has distinguished herself as a phenomenal student who represents her school and community so well in so many ways.  Nancy has excelled in soccer and Nordic skiing, is a fierce competitor, team captain and mentor to many of her teammates,” Kaleta said.  

Martin is an active member of the National Honor Society, Key Club, Link Crew, Natural Helpers and French Exchange and is the senior class president, to name a few of her school activities. School officials said she gives back to her community freely and selflessly, having logged more than 50 hours of community service in many areas from peer tutoring to volunteering at the Fort Kent Outdoor Center.

“Nancy has numerous gifts and accolades and yet remains a humble and helpful individual who will certainly make the world a better place. She is a true Warrior both on and off the field,” Kaleta said.

 Martin, Kaleta and other award winners and their principals participated in a virtual scholarship drawing event on April 1. Ten $1,000 scholarships were drawn 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 which represents Maine’s school administrators.
