JONESPORT — Stephen Cirrone of Jonesport, a senior at Jonesport-Beals High School, has been selected to receive the 2019 Principal’s Award.
The award, sponsored by the Maine Principals’ Association, is given in recognition of a high school senior’s academic achievement and citizenship.
“Stephen Cirrone is an outstanding student at Jonesport-Beals High School and will graduate at the top of the class in June,” said Principal Michael Kelley. “He is a focused young man committed to academic achievement.”
Cirrone is a member of the National Honor Society, and has been on the honor roll, achieving high honors, every quarter during his high school career. He serves as the class president, representing Jonesport-Beals at the Maine Youth Leadership Conference in 2017, and attending Dirigo Boys’ State in 2018. He was also selected as the DAR Good Citizen Award candidate and plays basketball and baseball.
“As a school leader and positive role model for Jonesport-Beals High School, Stephen serves as a mentor for elementary students. He is very deserving of this honor,” Kelley said.
Cirrone and Kelley joined other award winners and their principals at an honors luncheon in Bangor April 6. Honorees received plaques and $1,000 scholarships in the names of Horace O. McGowan and Richard W. Tyler, who are both former Maine principals and executive directors of the association.
The Principal’s Award is presented in more than 100 Maine public and private high schools by principals who are members of the MPA, the professional association that represents Maine’s school administrators.
