Bangor High School is thrilled to announce Amanda Tomlinson has been chosen as the recipient of this year's prestigious Educators for a Multilingual Maine (EMME) Student of the Year award. Amanda's exceptional achievements and contributions have made her the epitome of a well-rounded student who excels in both academics and extracurricular activities.

“Over the course of her high school journey, she has displayed an unwavering commitment to mastering different languages. With an impressive four years of Chinese language studies and two years of American Sign Language under her belt, Amanda's dedication shines through. In fact, last Spring, she even took the Avant test in Chinese, showcasing her proficiency in the language. Building on her success, Amanda plans to take the Avant test in American Sign Language this year, and come May 2024, she will be honored with the prestigious Maine Seal of Biliteracy.” said EMME Vice President, Fred Ravan.

Amanda's involvement in extracurricular activities extends beyond her achievements in language studies. She has actively participated in talent shows, theater productions, and chorus, showcasing her passion for the arts.

The selection of Amanda as EMME's Student of the Year was based on her exceptional performance in the World Language Department and her outstanding contributions to the school community. Her dedication, talent, and commitment to her studies and extracurricular activities truly embody the spirit of the EMME award.

We congratulate Amanda on this well-deserved recognition and wish her continued success in her future endeavors!
