MILO Colby Chase, son of Lisa Snide of Omeville and David Chase of Milo, and a senior at Penquis Valley High School, has been selected to receive the 2003 Principal's Award. The award, sponsored by the Maine Principals Association, is given in recognition of a high school senior's academic achievement and citizenship.

'Throughout his years at Penquis Valley, Colby has distinguished himself in the classroom, athletics, and as a leader in the school and community. He is an outstanding student," Associate Principal Deborah Folsom noted in announcing the award. "He very much deserves this award."

Colby and other award winners and their principals will attend an Honors Luncheon at the Bangor Civic Center on Saturday, April 5, 2003 at 1 p.m.

The Honors Luncheon recognizes these outstanding students with the presentation of an individual plaque and the awarding of five $1,000 scholarships in the names of Horace McGowan and Richard W. Tyier. Mr. McGowan and Mr. Tyier were former Maine principals and executive directors of the Association.

The Principal's Award is presented in more than 141 Maine public and private high schools by member principals of the MPA, the professional association which represents Maine's school administrators.
