Great things are happening in Albany's
students are doing extraordinary things.
There’s no shortage of great kids taking part in
the great programs offered by the City School District of Albany.
That’s why we highlighted 24 outstanding students in the 2012-13
Carlos Walker, pictured at right, is just one
example. He’s a whiz at science and computers, which is fitting since
he’s a student at the district’s themed elementary school with a focus
on science and technology -- Thomas O'Brien Academy of Science and
Technology, or TOAST.
The students were chosen by their principals
because they stand out in a variety of ways. Some excel in academics.
Others lead onstage, on the athletic fields or in the community. Some
do all of the above.
All are successful – some despite extraordinary
challenges they face on a daily basis – and serve as role models for
their fellow students.
Choosing one student, or a few, to represent each
school proved a challenge. In the end, though, we are proud to
recognize these 24 outstanding young people for being part of what
makes our schools great places to learn and grow.
