Congratulations to several world language students from South
Charleston High School who attained national recognition for excellent
performance on the 2016 National Spanish Examinations.

Students from South Charleston High School earned a total of  one
silver and one bronze medal along with three honorable mentions.
“Attaining a medal or honorable mention for any student on the
National Spanish Examinations is very prestigious,” said Kevin
Cessna-Buscemi, National Director of the Exams, “because the exams are
the largest of their kind in the United States with over 160,000
students participating in 2016.”

Students from South Charleston High School were taught by Spanish
teachers Mrs. Robin Peck and Mr. Antonio Jimenez who look forward to
student participation in future National Spanish Examinations.

The National Spanish Examinations are administered each year in grades
6 through 12, and are sponsored by the American Association of
Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese.
