Thirty Maine Teachers Honored by Bowdoin

Story posted April 15, 1999


April 28, 1999, BRUNSWICK, Maine -- Bowdoin is honoring 30 Maine secondary school teachers with Distinguished Teaching Awards for the lasting affect they have had on the lives of their students.

The honorees have been invited to Bowdoin for a series of events on Thursday, April 29. They will attend a luncheon with their former students, a reception and an awards dinner. They will also be able to tour the campus and attend the Brodie Family Lecture. (Please see related story.)

The award was created this year to pay tribute to the important role of high school teachers in instilling students with a passion for learning. The first recipients of the award include men and women who teach subjects as diverse as English, chemistry and music. They come from two dozen high schools throughout the state from South Portland to Fort Kent.

The honorees were chosen because they were all former teachers of students who have excelled at Bowdoin. The students had written in their College application essays about the positive influence of these teachers. Bowdoin is grateful to these teachers for inspiring students to learn and preparing them to excel in college and beyond.
