DGS Social Studies Department Holds Recognition Breakfast

May 11, 2017

The DGS Social Studies Department held its annual Recognition Breakfast on May 11, 2016. Teachers selected students from their classes who exemplify hard work, admirable character and consistency in the classroom. In addition, teachers selected Beatrice Ellen Beirne as their "Outstanding Senior" and a student who is a critical and analytical thinker as well as caring and involved member in society.

“In Beatrice’s high school career, she took nine semesters of Social Studies courses, grew intellectually, engaged and led her peers, and did it all with enthusiasm,” said Social Studies Department Chair Dr. Chris Esposito.

Kimberly Elsa Nothdurft received the Curt Koehler "Inquiring Minds" Award. Curt Koehler was a former DGS social studies teacher who encouraged his students to think more deeply, broadly, with greater clarity and compassion. Cora Koehler, daughter of Curt Koehler, presented the award to Kimberly.
