Wells High School Principal Eileen Sheehy recently announced that senior Ashleigh Bolduc has been selected to receive this year’s Maine Principals’ Association’s Principal’s Award. This award is presented in recognition of a high school senior’s academic achievement and citizenship.

“Ashleigh has distinguished herself as a student who values every opportunity to learn,” commented Principal Sheehy in announcing this news. “Her dedication is a testament to her commitment to excellence. She is a true leader.” Ashleigh is the daughter of Kevin and Deidre Bolduc of Ogunquit, Maine.

WHS Assistant Principal Josh Gould added, “Ashleigh’s charisma and positive attitude are contagious. She has a profound impact on the many activities for which she is involved in at Wells High School.”

According to Principal Sheehy, the list of Bolduc’s accomplishments include being a member of the National Honor Society, president of the Class of 2020, vice-president of the Interact Club, a member of the Student Council and was once selected to represent WHS at the Maine Youth Leadership seminar. During her high school career, she has maintained “High Honor Roll” status in challenging courses receiving recognition for this with Breakfast of Champions, Student of the Trimester and Academic Book awards.

In school athletics, Bolduc earned distinction for her performance on the WHS Field Hockey team resulting in her selection to the All-Academic team. She was a member of the WHS Cheerleading team and is currently on the WHS Indoor and Outdoor Track and Field teams. She earned a State Title in the Girls’ 4x100 meter relay and is a member of this year’s Unified Basketball team.

According to the Maine Principals’ Association website, the MPA Principal’s Award was established in 1984. Each year, high schools that are members of the MPA select one outstanding senior to receive this honor. Award recipients and their principals are invited to attend the organization’s Honors Luncheon which will be held this year on April 4th in Brewer, Maine. At this event, recipients will receive a lapel pin and plaque. In addition, five of these students will be selected by a lottery to receive $1,000 scholarships.
