Emily Watcher of Westminster High School has received a 2008-2009 Outstanding Senior in French Award from the American Association of Teachers of French (AATF).
This award is made annually to a graduating senior who has demonstrated excellence in the study of French, as well as exceptional commitment to the French language and the many cultures where it is spoken. Recipients must have completed at least three years of French study at the time of graduation and be non-native speakers of French.
Watcher is a French Club officer, tutors for the National Honor Society, and has participated in the National French Contest. She has studied French for five years. Her French teacher is Denise Diegel.
The AATF promotes the study of French language and French-speaking literature and cultures at all levels. It is the hope of the AATF that this award will motivate students to continue their study of French, either through a career in teaching or as a complement to any other profession.
