Saints Receive Awards for Excellence in Arts

Four juniors were recognized by the National Society of Arts and Letters on April 8.

Four Upper School students were recognized at the National Society of Arts and Letters (NSAL) Excellence in the Arts Event held at The Kennedy Center in D.C. on April 8. NSAL has recognized juniors in the Washington metropolitan area public, charter, and private high schools with an Award for Excellence (AEA) or a Certificate of Merit since 2004. These honors document students’ artistic talent and are a point of distinction on college applications. The students are recognized in the disciplines of art, dance, drama, literature, music, and musical theatre.
St. Stephen’s and St. Agnes student winners were nominated by our performing arts teachers, English teachers (who teach juniors), and Visual Arts teachers and selected by Head of School Kirsten Adams and Upper School Director Michael Mallett to represent our school.

These are the top juniors this year:
Isaac Ahdoot: Award of Merit for Instrumental Music
Nick Griepentrog: Award of Merit for Vocal Music
Laetitia Haddad: Award of Merit for Literature
Andrew Knops: Award of Merit in Visual Arts

In addition, Bette Vajda '19, 2018 recipient of the Award of Merit for Literature, read an original short story for the audience.

Way to go Saints! Learn more about our visual and performing arts at SSSAS.
