Camden High School Alumni Association held its 116th Annual Alumni Banquet Aug. 12, at the Elks Lodge in Rockland. One of the highlights of the banquet is the awarding of the annual Alumni Recognition Awards. Because of COVID, the 2020 and 2021 alumni banquets were cancelled which postponed the 2020 and 2021 awards to the 2022 banquet.

The 2020 award was made to University of Maine Associate Professor Ronald F. Banks, Ph.D., class of 1952 whose activities, contributions, and prominence outside of the Camden Area have brought recognition to the Greater Camden Area.

The 2021 Alumni Recognition Award was made to former Camden town manager and former Alumni Association President Roger Moody, class of 1961, who has made a significant contribution to the CHS Alumni Association as well as to the Greater Camden area, and whose activities, contributions, and prominence outside of the Camden Area have brought recognition to the Greater Camden Area.

Board Member Rodney Lynch, class of 1963 and chair of the Alumni Board’s Recognition Nomination Committee acted as the Master of Ceremony for the awards. Other Committee members included: Elaine Alley Davis ’61, Linda Barker Annis ’63, Geri Annis O’Connor ’61 and Patricia Kelly Ayers ’50. The first awards were given out in 2012, and since then there have been 27 recipients.
