Marian High School Students Attain National Recognition for Performance in National Spanish Examinations

Several Spanish students from Marian Catholic High School attained national recognition for excellent performance on the 2018 National Spanish Examinations.

Students for Marian Catholic earned a total of one gold, one silver, and two bronze medals, along with 13 honorable mentions. Earning gold was Aidan Hinchey, while Henry Kreisl earned a silver, and both Ryan Chapman and Emma McClafferty produced bronze medals.

“Attaining a medal or honorable mention for any student on the National Spanish Examinations is very prestigious, because the exams are the largest of their kind in the United States with over 150,000 students participating in 2018,” said Kevin Cessna-Buscemi, National Director of the Exams.

Students from Marian Catholic have a long history of high achievement on these exams and were taught by Spanish teacher Mrs. Deborah Coles. The National Spanish Examinations are administered each year in grades six through 12, and are sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese.
