German Students of Fayette County High School Win Awards at Convention

German students at Fayette County High brought home five awards from the 2009 State German Convention and one of them was elected vice-president of next year’s event.

A total of 14 students from the school attended the convention and competed against 20 other high schools from across the state. Students who won awards are Vernie Lumacang, first place in third year poetry recitation and first place in third year spelling; Michael Broich, second place in third year vocabulary; Jonathan Harper, second place in third year role-play and John Cudnohufsky and Katy Massey, third place in German Language Obstacle Course.

The convention gives students the opportunity to demonstrate their language proficiency and knowledge of culture in various ways. It has been held in Georgia for 36 years.

In addition to winning awards, Wesley Satterwhite was elected by his peers to serve as vice-president of the 2010 State German Convention.

“I am proud of our students, their hard work and achievements. They also had an exhaustingly good time,” says German teacher Betty Mason.
