Wells High School seniors Nora Stevens and Jonah Potter have been selected to receive the Western Maine Conference’s Citizenship Award for 2021. Each year two seniors from each high school in the WMC are selected by their school to receive this award in recognition of their leadership, community service and contributions to their school’s educational, athletic and social environments.

Nora Stevens, a three-season athlete, has been an outstanding member of the WHS Field Hockey, Indoor Track, and Lacrosse teams for the past four years being selected as captain of the Lacrosse team in her junior year.

In addition to holding a rigorous academic schedule, including Honors level and Advanced Placement classes, Stevens also has completed coursework through York County Community College, the University of Southern Maine, and the University of New England.

Jonah Potter is a peer role model in terms of volunteerism and leadership evidenced by being a volunteer tutor to elementary and junior high students and being vice president of the Interact Club/Community Service Program. He consistently maintains a high level of academic achievement, even pursuing subjects independently should a particular course not be offered in the school's curriculum. He is a talented student-athlete making four-year commitments to the Football, Wrestling, and Lacrosse programs. Potter has been a part of eight state championships during his tenure at WHS and was a student representative for the NEASC accreditation process at WHS meeting with regional representatives of the program.
