We're always excited to hear what our students are up to!

Here are some accomplishments shared by our students.

Catherine Allison '18 was named a Rotary Youth Leadership Award Scholar.

Allison, who was chosen by the Rotary Club of Addison Midday, recently attended Camp RYLA with 180 awardees. Students were exposed to a variety of leadership and team-building skills during the camp.

Candidates must be high school seniors who have demonstrated significant accomplishments as a leader. These students will continue to have opportunities to participate in Rotary Youth Leadership events and projects this year.

Margaret Kurilecz '18 won the National Security Language Initiative for Youth scholarship.

More than 3,500 students applied for the NSLI-Y program, which provides merit-based scholarships for eligible high school students and recent graduates to learn less commonly taught languages.

Margaret is in Arabic IV this year. Participants spend a summer or academic year studying a language while immersed in the culture and day-to-day life of the host country.

Annette Diaz's love of equestrian continues.

The junior recently completed the U.S. Equestrian Athlete Lettering Program. The program recognizes the accomplishments of young equestrians and encourages their future involvement in the sport.

Participants in the program document at least 100 hours of training and participate in three equestrian competitions during the year. After completing these requirements, students receive a varsity letterman patch and lapel pin for each year of participation.
