The MHS School Community Liaison Council (SCLC) has opened nominations for The Mainsail Award, which the SCLC has awarded since 1980. The Mainsail Award recognizes people who have made outstanding contributions to benefit the youth of the greater Bath community. In addition, nominees should exemplify the ideals of American citizenship such as respect, honesty, justice, individual freedom, and equal opportunity.

The nominee should have made a major contribution to the youth of the school district, though it may extend to the wider community, state, or nation.  The individual should be a current or past resident of the greater Bath area. The Mainsail Award will be presented this year in a manner still to be determined!

Current Morse students, current SCLC community members, and current RSU1 employees are not eligible for the award. The SCLC gives preference to individuals (as opposed to a single nomination for a husband and wife, for example) and to Morse High School alumni. However, a joint award could be considered. The SCLC thoroughly reviews all applications and meets the challenge of selecting a recipient for the award with a sense of gravity and honor.

The deadline for nominations is Wednesday, April 10, 2024. Direct questions to Kelsey Ortiz (, SCLC Advisor.
