Three students at Schreiber High School were recognized for their work in the area of social science research.

Madeline Lane received an honorable mention in the American Foreign Service Association’s National High School Essay Contest, which accepted more than 450 submissions from throughout the country. Madeline’s essay progressed through three levels of adjudication.

Additionally, Lane and fellow classmate Dexter Jarach were selected to advance to the second round of the JFK Profiles in Courage essay contest, sponsored by the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation. Their essays were among only 175 essays out of 1,913 national submissions to advance to the second round of judging.

Schreiber student Peter Kirgis was also recognized for his article on socialism in France, which was recently published in the Concord Review.

“Congratulations to the students and teachers on their fine work,” said Social Studies Department Chairperson Lawrence Schultz. “They make the Schreiber school community proud, and the social studies department is honored and grateful for their contributions.”
