"Robbie has demonstrated true leadership qualities throughout his four years with the golf program. ...  This individual has been a three-year starter for the squad and has qualified for the Baltimore County and District Championships. As team captain, this individual was a leader on and off the course."

Carrigan is an honor student, who currently has a 3.47 GPA and a 4.17 weighted GPA. He is also a member of the National Honor Society and the Tri-M Music Honor Society and the SPHS representative to the Baltimore County Superintendent Student Advisory Council. 

A member of the Boys Scouts, Carrigan earned his Eagle Scout Award in October 2014, and serves as a volunteer for Cub Pack 884, the National Youth Leadership Training and as an assistant coach for the Vipers lacrosse program.

"All in all, this individual is a great example of dedication towards athletics, academics and public Service," Neely wrote.
