Hampton Academy and High School (1926-1958)
Winnacunnet High School (1959-1971)

65th Anniversary Historic Souvenir Booklet

By Art Moody ’53 — 1972


Generally, Alumni Medals have been awarded to graduating seniors on the basis of both academic accomplishment and extracurricular activity. In the list below, the number within parentheses after the year is the total number of graduates in that year’s graduating class. Recipients are listed each year in the order that the Medals were awarded (First Medal, Second Medal, Third Medal), although, in some instances (especially to Academy recipients), no guarantee is made that the order of listing is correct. Only two Medals were presented in both 1926 and 1935; a tie for Second Medal in 1960 resulted in four Medals being presented. (Medalists are listed alphabetically for 1972)

The Medals program – begun in 1926 – has been continued for Winnacunnet High School. The names of W.H.S. winners are engraved on a plaque which is kept on permanent display at the high school. (There was no similar plaque for H.A. & H.S. winners.) A photograph of the W.H.S. plaque appears elsewhere. All 43 W.H.S. recipients to date achieved Academic Excellence (scholastic honors) and National Honor Society membership. In the 33 years of the award to 97 H.A. & H.S. seniors, (67 Medals went to Hampton residents (including 4 who lived at the Beach), 15 went to North Hampton residents, 14 to students from Hampton Falls and 1 to a Senior who lived in Seabrook. It should he noted that large numbers of students from the last three towns named did not choose to attend the Academy until 1941 and after, when the new facilities were available.
