Katelyn Hartnett, Danvers - 2008 Salem News Student-Athlete Awards

Katelyn Hartnett is pretty familiar with the letters M-V-P. Hartnett was the Northeastern Conference's girls soccer Most Valuable Player as a junior and also collected team MVP awards for the Falcons' winter track team during her sophomore year and for spring track in her junior year.

Teachers and Danvers High administrators would also have to give Hartnett some serious consideration if there were Most Valuable Student awards. Hartnett is ranked near the top of her class with a 97.2 average, and is a member of the World Language National Honor Society and National Honor Society. She has received only four grades in the B-range in her four years at Danvers High and she will attend the College of the Holy Cross, where she will run track.

"Katelyn is one of the strongest and hardest-working young women that I have encountered at Danvers High School," honors English teacher Erin Estep said. "Her easy smile belies a core of real strength and determination, and her popularity belies a very serious student and athlete committed to success in every arena of her life."

In addition to her athletic and academic endeavors, Hartnett also juggles community service — like the Young Neighbors in Action trips she has taken the past three years — and a steady work schedule.

  • sculpture Ipswich approaches gift of art cautiously, with good reason

    Art, like beauty, is in the eyes of the beholder. Which is why politicians and public officials often seek to avoid making judgments on public art. A wrong decision can create a furor.

    That might explain the caution of Ipswich selectmen as resident Rick Silverman proposes to honor his late wife and grace the town with an elegant sculpture on the North Green. Treading lightly lest they offend or preemptively reject the offer, they voted last week to set up a board that will advise them on what is and what isn’t welcome in Ipswich’s public spaces.
