MPA Principal’s Award

Horace O. McGowan, Richard W. Tyler, and Richard A. Durost Scholarships

The Principal’s Award was established in 1984 to recognize students for academic excellence and good citizenship. Each member school names a senior class student as its award recipient. Award winners and their principals are invited to an Honors Luncheon each spring. Each student receives a plaque and lapel pin in recognition of his/her achievement. A minimum of five students, chosen by lottery from a pool of names of those students present at the luncheon, are awarded $1000 scholarships.
