The ShineOnCass Junior Service Award, first started in 2015 at Messalonskee High School, now includes the recognition of outstanding students in surrounding local high schools! Beginning in 2018, this award will be bestowed annually to a JUNIOR at Waterville Senior High School who best emulates Cassidy Charette's genuine kindness, exceptional community and school service and compassion and selfless concern for others. This is a great addition to college applications! Candidates may be nominated by a parent, teacher, guidance counselor or community organization. Students are also encouraged to nominate themselves.
The ShineOnCass recipient will receive a monetary gift from the ShineOnCass Foundation to be used at their discretion to extend kindness and service. The recipient will receive a self-addressed stamped envelope and is encouraged to send a note to the Charette Family, sharing how they chose to Shine Cassidy's Light.
