Bob Saur, who served several generations of Londonderry Cub Scout and Boy Scout troops, was presented with the Robert W. Lincoln Youth Service Award during the high school's spring pep rally.
"This is someone who's devoted tons of time to our town's young people," Assistant Principal Art Psaledas said. "He clearly exemplifies the spirit of giving."
Principal Jason Parent recognized Assistant Principal Paul Dutton for his equally impressive contributions to the high school community. Dutton, who founded the school's Dollars for Scholars program in 1995, will leave the high school at the end of June after being appointed the new principal of Londonderry North Elementary School.
Taking the microphone, Dutton announced this year's Dollars for Scholars High School Teacher of the Year.
According to Dutton, over 155 school community members offered up nominations for the honors this year, with 17 of them praising the works of this year's winner, science teacher Daniel Grant.
"I just show up each day and do the job I love," she said, advising students past and present to simply "do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life."
