Principal of Wells High School James Daly has announced that Nicole Moody, a senior at Wells High School, has been selected to receive the Maine Principal’s Award for 2014.

This award is sponsored by the Maine Principal’s Association in recognition of high academic achievement and good citizenship demonstrated by Maine high school seniors. Each year one senior from each Maine high school in the MPA is selected by their school principal for this recognition.

“It is a huge honor to be…selected for this,” said Moody who indicated that she has performed a lot of community service including five years of service with “Shootin’ for A Cure”, an annual basketball hoops fundraising event held in the WOCSD that has raised thousands of dollars for breast cancer care at York Hospital. “It means a lot that my principal selected me,” added Moody in an interview.

“Nicole’s has played an important role at Wells High School for the past four years,” read a statement from Principal Daly’s office announcing this year’s choice. “She has been an outstanding role model and a high achiever.”

“Academically, Nicole has challenged herself by participating in several AP courses and has also elected to take advantage of the honors challenge in many of her core courses,” reads the statement. “Nicole’s leadership extends beyond the classroom as is evident by her extreme involvement in Varsity Soccer, Golf, Girls Basketball, and Lacrosse.”

“She is a great kid,” said Principal Daly. “She has done a great job in the last four years and she has worked extremely hard. She deserves the best.”

A luncheon to honor all recipients of the Maine Principal’s Award for 2014 will take place on Saturday, April 5, 2014 at the Spectacular Event Center in Bangor. At this luncheon, MPA recipients will be presented with a plaque and a pin.

Attendees to the luncheon are also eligible to win one of ten Horace O. McGowan Scholarships of $1,000 each in honor of McGowan, the MPA’s past executive director.

Moody, who is the daughter of Amy and Patrick Moody of Wells, says that she has been accepted at nine institutions of higher learning but as of this writing remains uncertain which college she will attend for a degree in Nursing.
