West Genesee’s First Recipients of the NYS Seal of Biliteracy

Bileteracy Seal LogoWest Genesee has students receiving the NYS Seal of Biliteracy for the first time.

This honor recognizes high school graduates who have attained a “high level of proficiency in listening, speaking, reading, and writing in one or more languages, in addition to English.”

It is proof of the hard work that the students have done to become culturally competent citizens who can communicate with others on a global level. These students demonstrated a history of high achievement in both English and World Language classes. As a culminating activity, students were also required to complete and present a project in a World Language.

Elizabeth Jones received the distinction for French. Spanish students who received this award are Jessica Bobbett, Oleg Borisiuk, Bonnie Cahill, Luis (Manny) Castro, Emily Cox, Clare Leo, William O’Brien, Amber Oberlender, and Cassandra Wetmore.
