Bangor High School Senior Tyler DeFroscia has been chosen by the Foreign Language Association of Maine (FLAME) to receive their Student Recognition Award for 2016 for his passion for and achievement in both French and Chinese, along with his involvement in and service to his school and community. Mr. DeFroscia will be honored at the FLAME annual conference in Portland in March.
“Tyler’s language skills are peerless, and his commitment to both his own education and the learning climate at Bangor High School are beyond compare,” said Marisue Schuiling, Modern Languages Department Chair. “He embodies the excellence that this award denotes.”
This is the second consecutive honor for a Bangor High School student, with Sam Kenney ’15 receiving the same award in 2015.
