New Lebanon senior John Wallace was recognized as an outstanding student at the 31st Annual Scholars’ Recognition Dinner on May 17. Each student chooses one teacher who has had a significant influence on their academic career and Wallace chose Science teacher Glenn Giumarra.
“Mr. Giumarra is a witty, enthusiastic teacher who perseveres to ensure that every student understands difficult concepts. He truly teachers, Let’s forge ahead,” said Wallace.
This annual event hosted by The Capital Area School Development Association (CASDA) recognizes high achieving high school seniors from secondary schools in the Greater Capital Region. Students are selected not only for their academic achievement, but also for their qualities of citizenship and leadership.
Wallace is a member of the National Honor Society and the recipient of several awards including the RPI Medal and Cornell Admissions Invitation. He is an active member of the Varsity soccer and track teams, as well as senior choir. In the fall, Wallace will attend Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Congratulations to both!
