Watch out for the School Smarties

Welcome our 2023 Sterling Scholars!

      Congratulations to our 2023 sterling scholars. If you are unsure of who the sterling scholars are, or what the sterling scholars do, they are exceptional students who are the most knowledgeable in their chosen expertise. The sterling scholars this year are not only intelligent, but also very driven in their field. They do projects pertaining to their subject. For example, Enoch Dye, our Art sterling scholar, is in the art club and participates in art shows. 

         Another example, Sebastian Padilla, Speech and Drama scholar, is president of the speech and debate club, and actively participates in the school musicals. They each have special gifts and talents that allow them to grow and develop in their field. The great thing about being a sterling scholar is the scholarship opportunities. Last year, our general sterling scholar, Quenna Yuan, competed at state and won $2,500 for her university education! There are many financial benefits of being a sterling scholar, as well as being noticed by top colleges and universities. 

       Our general sterling scholar, Sufia Khan, says, “It pushes me to do things outside of my comfort zone, in turn broadening my strengths to lengths I didn’t know was possible.” We can see from Sufia’s wise words that Sterling Scholar is an amazing tool for students to blossom into adulthood. If you get a chance, make sure to congratulate our incredible sterling scholars this year, and juniors, consider applying for next year.
