Three Dobson students have been named as Commended Students in the National Merit Scholarship Program. Kylie Chung, Tanner Rackow and Marie-Clementine Tixier are among only 34,000 students nationwide that are recognized for their exceptional academic promise.
"These young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success," commented a spokesperson for NMSC. These students represent a valuable national resource; recognizing their accomplishments, as well as the key role their schools play in their academic development, is vital to the advancement of educational excellence in our nation. We hope that this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success."
Congratulations Kylie, Tanner and Marie-Clementine; we are so very proud of you!
Congratulations to our very own Kim Klett for her publication in Teaching about Genocide: Insights and Advice from Secondary Teachers and Professors, Volume I. Kim wrote chapter 3 of the text, and gives wonderful advice for all teachers, including my favorite, "Continue to educate yourself, and don't be afraid of difficult questions that may arise."
Dobson sophomore Morian Richards was recently crowned New Miss Mesa Teen USA 2018-2019. Morian actively participates on JV Cheer Team, Advanced Hip Hop, Cross Country, and Track. She is also taking online classes in addition to being a full-time student at Dobson High School.
Throughout her reign she has been volunteering with Casting Crowns Productions and recently at Kidchella, a foundation miracle Ryker for creating a more beautiful world for families of children faced with serious illness and excessive hospital stays. Morian Richards has been visiting children that are admitted in Hospitals, giving inspirational talks, hugging, and loving on them. With a good heart she continues to volunteer.
In January, Morian will be competing for Miss Arizona Teen 2019, if she wins, onto Miss Teen USA 2019.
She says to all the Dobson High and Mesa Public Schools students, "lets continue to inspire each other, it’s not about competition, the competition is yourself, show respect even to people who don’t deserve it, let’s strive to be like the greatest people, and lets finish high school!"
