June 4, 2019 -- Congratulations to the eight Spanish students from Marcellus High School who attained national recognition for excellent performance on the 2019 National Spanish Examinations.
Sophomore Alyssa Hopper earned a bronze medal in the Level Three category. The following students won honorable mention: Angelina Coleman and Molly Stanton (Level II freshmen); Colleen Marsh and Connor Reagan (Level III sophomores); and Grayson Hoag, Nick Roseboom and Jeffrey Shi (Level V seniors).
“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 146,000 students participating in 2019.”
Students from Marcellus High School have a long history of high achievement on these exams and were taught by Spanish teachers Molly Hammond and Shelly Marsh.
The National Spanish Examinations are administered each year in grades six through 12 and sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese.
