Students Earn National Recognition on Spanish Examinations

May 29, 2014

Congratulations to several world language students who attained national recognition for excellent performance on the 2013 National Spanish Examinations (NSE). Sacred Heart students earned a total of three gold, five silver, and fourteen bronze medals along with twenty honorable mentions. Our students have a long history of high achievement on these exams and were taught by Spanish teachers, Mr. Oscar Rollan and Dr. Carmen Martinez Rivera.

“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 154,000 students participating in 2014.” 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.
