DALTON, Mass. — Lucas Wildrick is this school year's recipient of the Superintendent's Award for Academic Excellence. 
Wildrick, a senior at Wahconah Regional High School, was presented with the award at the Nov. 9 Central Berkshire Regional School Committee meeting by Superintendent Leslie Blake-Davis.
The Massachusetts Association of School Superintendents award is given to the student who has distinguished themselves by maintaining high academic standings and leadership endeavors.
Wildrick, the son of Rachel and Stephen Wildrick of Dalton, has participated in several groups at Wahconah High including the Youth Advisory Board, the Rotary Club, Best Buddies, Quiz Team, and National Honor Society. He has served as a mentor to many of the younger members in the school community in the role of coach for youth baseball and basketball, and through his work as a summer camp counselor at the Dalton Youth Center.  
"I am extremely impressed with his commitment to some of the younger learners within our school community. Serving as a role model can make all the difference in the learning life of a student," said Blake-Davis. "Knowing that there is someone you can look up to as a friend, role model, and advocate means so much."

Last year, White found a new way to take that positive energy and put it to work supporting the broader community.
This month, he will share that spirit of community on the sport's biggest stage.
