Margaret “Molly” Lammert ’09 of Glenburn, a senior at John Bapst Memorial High School, has been selected to receive the 2009 Principal’s Award. The award is sponsored by the Maine Principals’ Association (MPA) and is given in recognition of a high school senior’s academic achievement and citizenship. It is presented in more than 140 Maine public and private high schools by member principals of the MPA, the professional association that represents Maine’s school administrators.
In making this announcement, Head of School Mel MacKay noted, “Throughout her years at John Bapst, Molly has distinguished herself in many ways, not only in the classroom and on the playing field, but also as a leader in the school and the community. This is a recognition she truly deserves.”
At John Bapst, Molly has received numerous classroom awards, including several for Honors and Advanced Placement courses. She has earned her Academic Letter and is the Class of 2009 recipient of the Society of Women Engineers Book Award and the Phi Beta Kappa Award. A high honor student, Molly is a member of the John Bapst National Honor Society, Key Club, Civil Rights Team, Math Team, and Student Ambassadors. In the athletic arena, she has lettered in three varsity sports during her high school career, including Girls Soccer, Indoor Track & Field, and Spring Track and Field. She is the daughter of Mary and Steve Lammert of Glenburn.
Molly and the other award winners will be feted at an Honors Luncheon on Saturday, April 4, in Bangor. The students will be recognized for their accomplishments and presented with individual plaques. In addition, five will be chosen to receive $1,000 scholarship awards in the names of Horace O. McGowan and Richard W. Tyler, former Maine principals and executive directors of the Maine Principals’ Association.
