As adults we often hear or see news which depicts the next generation of high school graduates as less than ambitious or lacking drive and direction. The result is we are bombarded with the negatives and shortcomings of the current generation of students and unfortunately lost in the shuffle are the positive stories of today’s youth, overlooked for not being deemed newsworthy or sensational enough. We had the good fortune of photographing Nichole’s senior pictures this past fall at Fort Williams Park in Cape Elizabeth, Maine.

We would like to share the release put out by Community Resources of the Lisbon High School Department.

Lisbon – Principal Kenneth Healey of Lisbon High School announced today Nichole Jones, a member of the Class of 2014, has been selected to receive the 2014 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.  Nichole is the daughter of Lhu and Brian Jones of Lisbon Falls.

“Nichole has provided service above self in our community as a young adult volunteer in Lisbon Schools,” shares Healey.  “She exudes leadership, compassion, dedication and caring to make significant contributions in the classroom and on the playing field.  She defines commitment assisting with Special Olympics and serving as co-student editor of the Yearbook.   Nichole was recently named a Mountain Valley Conference Academic All-Star in Field Hockey. Nichole provides excellence in all she embarks upon.”
