Schuylerville High School senior Derek Willson has been selected as a recipient of The Post-Star’s Teen Excellence Award. Willson will be recognized at an awards breakfast on Wednesday, March 7 at The Great Escape Lodge in Queensbury and will be featured in a special edition of The Post-Star.

Willson is one of just 21 students from the region to receive this honor, after a panel of judges reviewed nomination materials submitted by school representatives, coaches, youth group leaders, employers and church leaders. Willson and his fellow Teen Excellence Award recipients are being recognized for accomplishments that go beyond academics and athletics, with the award seeking to identify “outstanding young people between the ages of 13 and 19 who have demonstrated personal growth, leadership and innovation along with a commitment to the community.”
