On January 11th, students from across Frederick County received the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Award. These students were selected from FCPS schools because they embody King’s principles of community and sacrifice.

One student from every FCPS school is selected to receive this award. Nominees must display the characteristics of Dr. King: acceptance, community-service, kindness, and academic diligence. Tommy Moyer, class of 2018, was selected as the recipient of the award for Linganore High School.

“It was an honor to receive the award,” said Moyer. “I didn’t apply or anything, the administrators and my teachers nominated me of their own volition. I see it as more about trying to be a good person every day, and I’m happy to see that someone thinks I’m making a difference.”

The auditorium of Gov. Thomas Johnson High School filled with parents, teachers, and community leaders. The night included musical presentations by Centerville Elementary, Carroll Manor Elementary, and the TJ High School Dance team. FCPS Superintendent Terry Alban and Board of Education President Brad Young presented a medallion and certificate to each awardee.

The event was led by three LHS students, selected for their superb academic performance: Sophia Posada, Haley Barge, and Lars Eklund.

Congratulations to all those honored at the ceremony, especially Linganore’s own Tommy Moyer.
