MCDS junior Francess D. received special recognition for being our school’s official nominee for the 2015 NCTE Achievement Awards in Writing. Francess also received a Certificate of Recognition from the National Council of Teachers of English.
In total, 650 juniors were selected by their schools to participate in the 2015 program. Of those, 141 students were chosen as outstanding writers. Francess was one of only three students recognized in the state of Florida.
This superior achievement is a reflection of the teachers and the Humanities program at Miami Country Day School. A special thank you to Scott Brennan, Carolyn Dorn, Amy Gallup, and Susanna Linfield, our faculty judges in the interior selection process.
