LOCAL SPANISH STUDENTS SCORE WELL
Congratulations to several Spanish students from Newaygo High School who attained national recognition for excellent performance on the 2021 National Spanish Examinations.
Students from Newaygo High School earned a total of five honors. “Attaining a medal or honorable mention for any student on the National Spanish Examinations is very prestigious,” said Kevin Cessna-Buscemi, National Director of the Exams, “because the exams are the largest of their kind in the United States with over 55,000 students participating in 2021.”
Students from Newaygo High School have a long history of high achievement on these exams and were taught by Spanish teachers Brittany Christensen, Gena Dietz and Alexis Mercer.
The National Spanish Examinations are administered each year in grades 6 through 12, and are sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese.
