SJCS Students Honored with Book Awards
Two members of the SJCS Class of 2022 and three from the Class of 2021 have received Book Awards over the past two school years.
Juniors Avery Brice and Victoria Kucaba were recently recognized, Avery with the Saint Michael’s Book Award and Victoria with the Washington and Lee Book Award.
Graduating seniors Caroline Linen (Washington and Lee), Sara Gushue (George Washington University), and Eliza Anderson (St. Michael’s) were recognized for the previous academic year.
The Scholarship Committee, comprised of teachers and administrators, selects a rising senior whom they feel best exemplifies the qualities of each of these awards.
The Washington and Lee Book Award is presented to a current junior (rising senior) who, in the opinion of the school, most exemplifies a combination of academic excellence, personal integrity and strength of character, participation in extracurricular activities, and leadership.
The recipient of the Saint Michael’s Book Award for Academic Achievement and Social Conscience has demonstrated academic excellence and a sustained and sincere commitment to community service, issues of peace and justice, and concern for others.
The George Washington University Book Award recognizes high school juniors who embody the GW drive and spirit, specifically with their academic excellence, leadership outside of the classroom, diversity of thought, and ability to put knowledge into action.
Congratulations to all five of these outstanding students!
