Brewer student inducted into National Honor Society for online school

Maine Connections Academy (MCA), the state’s first distance-learning charter school, announces nine students from across Maine have been newly inducted into the school’s chapter of the National Honor Society (NHS).

Among these nine is Abigail Hannnington, of Brewer. A 12th-grader, Abigail hopes someday to earn her PhD in Philosophy and teach at a university. She writes poetry and would like to publish her works.

To be considered for NHS membership, students submitted a formal application and narrative, outlining their qualifications. These nine students were selected based on high academic standing, as well as demonstrated excellence in the areas of service, leadership and quality of character. They will be expected to work as a team in chapter meetings and complete service projects to benefit their communities.
