Gold Medals In The National Spanish Exam For Waldron Mercy Academy Students



Several eighth grade students at Waldron Mercy Academy recently attained national recognition for excellent performance on the 2017 National Spanish Examinations.


Waldron Mercy students earned a total of three gold, one silver and two bronze medals along with two 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 157,000 students participating in 2017.”


Students who attend Waldron Mercy have a long history of achieving academic excellence. The students who received these honors can add them to already impressive academic and extracurricular resumes: Agustin Aliaga, Nora Burns, Jimmy King, Maya Murray, Elaina Stuhlman, Katie Turk and Vincent Vento. Their teacher, Señora Carolina Kakos, is extremely proud of her students hard work and accomplishments.
