North Yarmouth Academy (NYA) is proud to announce that David Champoux (North Yarmouth) is the recipient of the Cupola Award, presented for outstanding service in support of NYA. Champoux is a long-time supporter of NYA, as a volunteer, parent, and as a donor.
The Cupola Award was created in 2009 to honor those who have provided exemplary service in support of North Yarmouth Academy. The award is not presented annually but is an honor that is awarded when special recognition is merited. The award was presented to Champoux at the Head of School’s Circle Dinner on September 14, 2014. Previous recipients of the Cupola Award include: Betsy Mead of Yarmouth, Janet Bowne of Falmouth, Lynne Roche of Yarmouth, and Linc Merrill of North Yarmouth.
After graduating Harvard University in 1981, Champoux attended University of Virginia Law School, graduating in 1984. He is a partner in Pierce Atwood’s Business Law Practice Group. Champoux is the parent of two NYA alumni, Alexander ’07 and Philip ’10 and became a member of the NYA community when his elder son entered NYA in 2000 as a sixth grader. In 2005, he joined the NYA Board of Trustees and served as a trusted and valuable member until July of 2014.
“The Academy is grateful to have David as a generous supporter and advocate in our community,” says Kristen Farnham, NYA’s Director of Development. “He is a true leader, a firm believer in NYA’s education and mission, and a wise philanthropist. David, his wife Lynne, and their family have supported NYA in countless ways over the years. We are proud to recognize his service with the Cupola Award.”
