Student of the Year

The Spanish Department would like to congratulate Sydney Waite for her selection as the Senior Honors Student of the Year. Sydney has demonstrated exceptional skill and interest in the Spanish language. She has added wisdom, grace, and a positive attitude to our language class. Her efforts have been noticed and are greatly appreciated by all of the Spanish teachers. ¡Felicidades, Sydney!

Congratulations to Patrick McCreery on being selected the French Student of the Year! Patrick is a student who has proven his dedication to his study of French time and time again when he arrives in class each day prepared and ready to work. He excels at the language because he takes the time to ask questions and follow up on corrections in order to learn from his mistakes to be able to use them going forward. Félicitations Patrick!
