“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 157,000 students participating in 2015.”
Students from Wakeland High School have a long history of high achievement in the LOTE program and through this opportunity, were able to show once again, that they have what it takes to compete on a national level in the language.
