CONGRATULATIONS to Felse Kyle and Nevin Joshy who were recognized at Wednesday night's BOE meeting for being awarded the Connecticut Association of Public School Superintendents’ (CAPSS) Award for leadership, service to the school, academic prowess relative to ability, and service to others in the community. Below are the remarks and reasons why these two exceptional students were selected for this award.
Nevin Joshy is a true scholar, a talented musician, and an excellent athlete who embodies our core values of accountability, respect, integrity and perseverance. As a scholar he consistently challenges himself with AP and ECE courses across all disciplines – math science, English, history as well as Spanish. In the classroom he is known to be inquisitive yet humble wanting to learn for the sake of learning – holding himself accountable by setting high expectations for himself and peers alike and excelling in all areas of his academics. This is equally true when considering Nevin’s achievements outside of the classroom. He is a gifted musician who shines in Wind Ensemble, Jazz Ensemble and the Pit Orchestra. Nevin is a three-season athlete, a captain of the soccer team, and the recipient of the “Eye of the Wildcat” award. He is an active member and participant of the Athletic Leadership Council, the Student Advisory Council the National Honor Society, La Sociedad Honoraria Hispanica, High School Bowl, Math Team, Robotics Team, and a Science Olympian and Coach– wherever the situation and whatever the material, Nevin is a hardworking, quiet leader and incredible role model working for the betterment of the team (sports or otherwise) and consistently leads by example. In his extra time, he is committed to various community services activities and can be found working on Eagle Scout Projects, at his church as a lector or Bible camp or leading kids in team building activities for the OL Parks and Recs program. He believes in being a strong advocate and role model for his peers - showing respect to his teammates and others at all times."
"Felse Kyle is one of the most energetic, passionate, caring and hardest working members of our LOL community. She is an outstanding student, a natural leader and role model both in the halls of LOLHS and equally so in the athletic arena. She consistently strives to make important and valuable contributions in virtually every aspect of her community at large. She has been an active member of the CT Association of Schools State Student Advisory Council on Education as well as the CIAC Student Athletic Advisory Board for the past two years and was appointed CEO of the Girls Scouts of Connecticut Property Task Force. Even with these significant responsibilities, Felse manages to thrive in her academics. She is a true scholar who consistently challenges herself evidenced by her many AP and ECE classes that span all disciplines. To a group of 8th graders when discussing course loads and the need for study halls, she announced that she likes to have a full schedule rather than study halls because she wants to get as much out of her high school experience as she possibly can. Felse is a three-season athlete who always leads by example on the field or in the skull. She currently holds a leadership role in our Student Advisory Council, and is an active member of the National Honor Society, La Société Honoraire de Français, the Athletic Leadership Council, the Science Olympiad, Robotics team, Math Team, Jazz Band, WLYM broadcast team, Environmental club, Ping Pong Club, and in case that wasn’t sufficient, this year she joined our Online School Newspaper, The Osprey. So… it is no surprise that Felse is known by many as the LOLHS energizer bunny. "
