Wells High School seniors Francesca Ramsdell and Logan Bedell have been selected by WHS to receive Western Maine Conference’s (WMC) Citizenship Award for 2020. This award recognizes student character and contributions to their school’s educational, athletic and social environments plus community volunteer service.

Each year, two graduating seniors at high schools in the WMC are selected by their school to receive this award. According to WHS Principal Eileen Sheehy, those that are selected “…exemplify the qualities of leadership, citizenship, strong academics and are strong athletes.”

Francesca Ramsdell was described in a recent article in a WHS newsletter, as “…an integral part of the WHS community. Her quiet leadership is demonstrated in many ways…” Franny has served in numerous roles including vice-president of the Student Council and Interact Club as well as president and vice-president of her class. She is also a member of the National Honor Society, captain of the Lacrosse team and has played an important role in the Girls’ Basketball team’s “Shootin’ for a Cure” fundraising program. In her sophomore and junior year, she received the WHS All-Star award in basketball. She also volunteers at a community food pantry and recreation department.

Logan Bedell was described in the above-mentioned school newsletter article as “…a role model and leader and has dedicated countless hours to enrich the lives of those around her.” Logan is a member of the National Honor Society, Student Council, Interact Club, Philosophy Club, and Environmental Club. She is a three-season athlete who is a member of the volleyball, basketball, and softball teams. Logan has also been dedicated to raising funds for “Shootin’ for a Cure” and volunteers with Wells Elementary School’s PTSA and the Wells Congregational Church’s “Soups On” program. In addition, she was once selected to serve on a panel discussion for the New England Association of Schools and Colleges Collaborative Conference.

These students and many others receiving this award will be honored by the Western Maine Conference at the organization’s annual Citizenship Awards Banquet held March 5th at the Italian Heritage Center in Portland.
