Kappa Alpha Psi Necktie Club Clubs, Varsity Football · Junior Adam MoeZaw named Frederick High School’s 2021 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Award recipient


Each year Frederick County Public Schools celebrates the leadership qualities of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by hosting a winter celebration.  A representative from each school is chosen to represent the student body and must possess and demonstrate leadership characteristics both in and out of the classroom.  This year Frederick High School is pleased to announce 11th grader Adam MoeZaw as our Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Award recipient.

Adam is a Junior at Frederick High School and is also a member of the introductory cohort of FCPS Middle College students at FCC. He is currently serving as our Necktie Club president and is an active member of the Cadet Football team. His coach Kevin Pirri would like to share, “He is hands down the best representative of Frederick Football, FHS and LYNX!”

When not at school, Adam helps his family by working at his parents’ store, Asian Supermarket. He also works with organizations aimed around saving our oceans from over harvesting “so we can keep the marine eco system alive.” Upon graduation Adam plans to seek a degree in nursing. To this Adam has said, “Nurses can really make a difference in someone’s life. If you have a reassuring nurse that’s kind to you and your family during a hard situation, you will remember that nurse for a long time. That’s what I hope to be.”

We are extremely proud of Adam and know that he will represent Frederick High School well as the recipient of this award.  This year’s Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration is scheduled as a virtual event that will be airing on FCPS Cable 18 and YouTube Channel on Thursday, January 7, 2021.

Please join us in congratulating Adam for this great honor!
