CARIBOU, Maine — Alaina Quinlan of Caribou, a senior at Caribou High School, has been selected to receive the 2021 Principal’s Award, Principal Dr. Eric McGough announced.  

The award, sponsored by the Maine Principals’ Association, is given in recognition of a high school senior’s academic achievement and citizenship.

“Alaina has been the model of leadership and excellence in the time that I have worked at Caribou High School.  She played an active role in our return to school safety protocols and videos, demonstrating her leadership in our school community,” McGough said. 

“With every challenge that this year has presented to our staff and students, Alaina has risen to the occasion and thrived.  I am incredibly proud of the quality person that she is, and look forward to many great things from her in the future,” he said.

Alaina, McGough and other award winners and their principals will participate in a Live Virtual Scholarship Drawing event on Friday, May 14, at 1 p.m.  

Ten $1,000 scholarships will be drawn in the names of former Maine principals and MPA executive directors: Horace O. McGowan, Richard W. Tyler, and Richard A. Durost.

The Principal’s Award is presented in more than 100 Maine public and private high schools by member principals of the MPA, the professional association which represents Maine’s school administrators.
