Students Excel in National Spanish & French Contests
Woodward Upper School Spanish students earned a total of eight gold (top 5%), 34 silver (top 15%), and 24 bronze (top 25%) medals along with 22 honorable mentions in the 2020 National Spanish Examinations. “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 more than 140,000 students registered in 2020.”
Woodward students have a long history of high achievement on these exams and were taught by Spanish teachers, Mr. Michael Farry, Ms. Traci Lerner, Ms. Kelli Stanyard, and Ms. Lori Beth Wiseman.
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.
In the 2020 National French Contest, one Upper School student earned a Bronze award, with three students earning Honorable Mention awards. All four students were taught by Ms. Willis.
