Recent Spruce Creek High School graduate Matthew Monroe, of Ormond Beach, was named his school’s “Hawk of the Year” during a senior awards ceremony June 1.
Monroe’s photo will join those of previous award winners on his school’s wall of fame, his mother, Cynthia Petrie Monroe, told the Observer.
“He was thrilled for this recognition,” she said. “It really culminated a wonderful high school experience.”
Monroe also received an Outstanding Actor award during the Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center Applause Awards on June 3 for his role as Damian Hubbard in Spruce Creek High School’s production of “Mean Girls.”
The awards program recognized almost 300 high school musical students from 33 schools and seven counties, selected by a 12-person panel of statewide casting agents.
In the fall, Monroe will head to Dartmouth College in New Hampshire.
