Several world language students from Westminster Christian Academy received national recognition for outstanding performance on the 2013 National Spanish Examinations.

Students were awarded a total of four gold, eight silver, and 15 bronze medals, in addition to 43 honorable mentions. A special mention goes to Jennie Albertson, a Spanish III student, who scored at the 99th percentile.

“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 156,000 students participating in 2013.”
