Eighteen Staples seniors received an email on March 3, 2017 notifying them of being in the top 4 percent of their class, which qualified them for the High Honors Society.

“I was super excited and didn’t expect it or to even be at the spot where I am,” Julie Kaplan ’17 said.
“It feels very good to be recognized for my academic achievements.”

The students were invited to a congratulatory meeting with Principal James D’Amico on March 7, 2017.

“When I found out, I was extremely pleased and somewhat surprised,” Tia Pogue ’17 said. “I felt honored to be included.”

The students in the High Honors Society are awarded a dinner on April 26, 2017 to celebrate their academic prowess.

“I feel very honored to be amongst such a talented group of academics,” Jonathan Alter ’17 said.

The students who will make up the High Honors Society are valedictorian Emily Schussheim ’17, salutatorian Christopher Scherban ’17, Claire Dinshaw ’17, Isabelle Amlicke ’17, Katherine Weinschenk ’17, Phoebe Spear ’17, Renee Weisz ’17, Tia Pogue ’17, Jonathan Demeter ’17, Julie Kaplan ’17, Lindsey Marks ’17, Kelly Moran ’17, Jay Mudholkar ’17, Luca Cocito ’17, Brendan Massoud ’17, Jonathan Alter ’17, Sarah Barnett ’17, Ulyana Piterbard ’17.

“It’s really nice to have that source of validation, that after three and a half years of hard work and stress, we know that it actually meant something,” Pogue said.
