The American Council of Teachers of Russian has just announced that MLWGS Senior Spencer Pigg has been selected as a Russian Scholar Laureate for 2010. He is a member of a highly select group of Russian students from secondary schools all over the U.S. identified by their teachers and principals as the most outstanding Russian student of 2010 at each school. In two years of Russian study, Spencer blended his innate linguistic talent with an uncommon work ethic to earn this prestigious nomination. The deserving honoree will receive an award certificate and a special lapel pin, and his name and picture will be featured in a special section of the fall issue of the ACTR newsletter.
Congratulations to Spencer!
