Third quarter Honor Roll recognition

POSTED 5/13/2014
Breakfast recognizes honor roll students for third quarter
The OESJ Elementary School/Middle School recognized 80 students who earned placement on the schools' third quarter High Honor or Honor Roll at a breakfast ceremony Friday, April 29. 

Students earning High Honor Roll recognition must achieve an 89.5 percent or higher average. Honor Roll students must earn an average of an average between 84.5 and 89.4 percent.

The guest speaker at the recognition ceremony was 2011 St. Johnsville graduate Casey Madsen. 

Madsen will graduate from Fulton-Montgomery Community College’s Radiologic Technology program this spring, and will be the featured student speaker at the college’s commencement ceremony May 16. 

While at F-MCC, Madsen was the student trustee on the college’s Board of Trustees, was a Phi Theta Kappa member and was the 2014 recipient of the Distinguished Student Service Award in recognition of her service to the campus and community. In the fall she will attend the State University of New York at Albany to study biology (pre-med), with the goal of pursuing a career in surgery.

During her speech, Madsen gave the student scholars four pieces of advice: 1) Be honest 2) Realize what you can and cannot change 3) Surprise yourself and 4) Inspire others. 

 “You all have the amazing advantage of living in a small town,” Madsen told the students. “Inspire your neighbor, your friend, your little brother or sister. It will inspire you when you inspire others.”
