Two Triton High School World Language Honor Society members, Crista Smith and Sara Winnick have each been selected as the recipients of a $2,000 francophone studies stipend for their intent to pursue French and Francophone studies beyond High School.
Crista and Sara were chosen for this national award based on their applications, their essays in French, two teacher recommendations, and their records of academic excellence. The AATF SHF selection committee is thrilled to be able to contribute to the education of these impressive students as they weave their passions for French and science to obtain their nursing degrees. We hope that one day they may be able to contribute to the medical needs of French speakers in Haiti, and in numerous Francophone countries in North and West Africa through such organizations as Médecins Sans Frontières.
There were ten students selected for this award; three students from Massachusetts, two from Illinois, two from Texas, one from Oregon, one from Kentucky, and one from New Jersey.
Congratulations to Crista and Sara!
