Congratulations Clayton!

World Language Distinguished Scholar named at Norfolk High School.

Norfolk Public Schools is excited to recognize NHS student Clayton Spray for being named a World Language Distinguished Scholar by the Nebraska Department of Education.   

The World Language Distinguished Scholar Award recognizes Nebraska high school students for their leadership in language learning, commitment to language study, appreciation for cultural diversity, and communicative competence.  High schools in Nebraska were able to nominate students meeting these characteristics, with only one student per level per ESU being chosen, based on superior proficiency and performance, as well as passion and dedication to world language study.

Ms. Martha Thompson, French Teacher at Norfolk High School, said in her nomination form:  Clayton is an excellent student.  His enthusiasm for learning French has positively influenced my small French classes for the past three years.  He embraces both the language and culture. Clayton, in an effort to immerse himself in the language has set his cell phone language to French.  Now every time he uses his phone, he is practicing his French. Clayton is also planning to test and apply for the Seal of Biliteracy.

Please join us in congratulating Mr. Clayton Spray on this honor.
