Huntington High School Receives 2007 Abraxas Award

Story posted July 17, 2007

Bowdoin College has given the 2007 Abraxas Award to Huntington High School in Huntington, W.Va. The Abraxas Award is presented annually to the secondary school sending two or more graduates to Bowdoin, whose representatives maintain the highest standing during their first year at the College.

Two Huntington High School graduates and members of Bowdoin's Class of 2010 maintained this highest standing during the 2006-07 academic year. They are sisters Emily Norton and Rachael Norton.

The Abraxas Award was established in 1915 by the Abraxas Society, a former Bowdoin junior class scholarly society that was active from 1893 to about 1924.
