Westminster High student gets award

December 14, 1993

Angie Nickolas, a Westminster High senior, is one of 713 high school seniors across the country honored for excellence in written English by the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE).

She earned recognition through the 1993 Achievement Awards in Writing, an annual event in which students are judged on samples of their best prose or verse and on impromptu themes written under supervision.

Writings were read by two judges who looked for effective and imaginative use of language to inform and move an audience.

Winning students receive a certificate of achievement and have their names published in a booklet sent to directors of admissions at 3,000 colleges, state supervisors of English and to state NCTE leaders.
