Congratulations to several Spanish students from Clinton High School who participated in the National Spanish Exam.
This year there were five students who won an honorable-mention medal.
“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 Clinton High School have a long history of participation on these exams, and the school has had many students who have received medals.
This year, the Spanish 1 Honors had 15 participants, and the Spanish 2 Honors had 24 participants, and there was one student who took the Spanish 4 exam.
Five students received honorable-mention medals: Marissa Winter and Lily Ortiz, in the Spanish 1 Honors class, and Ashton Arndt, Grace Abner, and Kylie Gillis in Spanish 2.
The students may wear their medals at their graduations.
They were taught by Spanish teachers Cheryl Broome and Maria Oliveros.
The National Spanish Examinations are administered each year in grades 6-12, and are sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese.
