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."
