Description of Special Designation Awards

Clyde K. Watson Award:  Dr. Watson was the first principal at Maine South beginning in 1964.  The student given this award must exemplify exceptional personal accomplishment and scholastic achievement. (This scholarship is awarded to the scholarship recipient with the highest ranked application.)


Jan Cannon Award:  Jan Cannon was a long time career counselor and school liaison to the MSPSC.  The student given this award has exemplified a natural mentoring ability, participated in school activities, has an outstanding academic achievement, has high goals and has expressed an interest in the field of education.  (This scholarship is awarded to the scholarship recipient who has expressed an interest in the field of education.)


Virginia Feurer Award:  Virginia Feurer was a long time career counselor and school liaison to the MSPSC.  The student given this award must demonstrate enthusiasm for learning, academic effort, school and community service, compassion, positive outlook and a sense of humor.  (This scholarship is awarded to the scholarship recipient who has exhibited a high level of volunteerism.)


Dr. Susan Lindquist Award: The late Dr. Lindquist is on the Maine South Wall of Honor.  She was a pioneer in genetic science whose work is often described as "paradigm-shifting".  This award is given in her honor made possible due to a generous donation from the Alumni Class of 1967 to the strongest female applicant entering her studies in the field of science.


Martin McGovern/Scottie Wind Memorial Scholarship Award:  Both were Maine South graduates, good friends and both tragically taken from us too soon.  This special scholarship, in their memory, is given to recipients who have excelled in soccer, music, student council and foreign language.  All areas that were very important to them.
