World Language Distinguished Scholar named at Norfolk High School.

Norfolk Public Schools is excited to recognize NHS student Corrin Day 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:  Corrin has always been a leader in the classroom. She has a positive can-do attitude that encourages the students around her.  She speaks up and asks excellent questions that other students may not articulate. Corrin comes in everyday during my French 3 course and works independently on the French 4 curriculum.  My time is very limited to provide direct instruction. She has had the initiative and drive to work independently and to spend extra time outside of class to receive direct instruction. She has been an excellent example of hard work and dedication and leadership for my French 3 students. The progress that she has made this year towards proficiency has been remarkable. She is working towards the Seal of Biliteracy.

Please join us in congratulating Corrin on this honor.
