Four juniors were recognized by the National Society of Arts and Letters on May 6.

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 May 6. 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:
Catherine Owens: Award of Excellence in Visual Arts
Mary Margaret Lehmkuhler: Award of Merit for Theater
Bette Vajda: Award of Merit for Literature
Campbell Weiss: Award of Merit for Vocal Music
