The Class of 2020 closed the Proctor chapter of their lives in a most bizarre manner. A virtual Senior Awards Night and Commencement afforded faculty and staff the opportunity to recognize members of the senior class with awards and recognitions. Among those honored were the following Andover residents:

Philip H. Savage Award for outstanding leadership qualities: Vienna Marcus
Alice S. Fowler Award presented to the student in the graduating class who best exemplifies strength of character, personal dedication, and commitment to the Proctor community: Vienna Marcus.
Stanley V. Wright Award for History: Vienna Marcus
Varsity Athletics Award: Vienna Marcus
Andover Service Club Award: Blaine Hinds and Chloe Makechnie
Award for Excellence in Mandarin: Chloe Makechnie
Dance Award: Ryelle Jenifer
Performing Arts Award: Tori Braley
Music Award for Vocal Contribution to Music Ensembles: Tori Braley

Andover’s Diane Benson was also recognized with the Nance Barrett Service Award. This Honors the loyal services of non-faculty staff. This award seeks to achieve two goals: to recognize extraordinary service to the Proctor Community by a non-faculty member and to heighten awareness of the dedication, hard work, and loyalty of all its employees which makes possible the smooth operation of this institution.
