To the editor:
Due to miscommunication within school administration, Bishop Seabury Academy did not submit nominations for the Journal-World Academic All-Star team this year. We look forward to participating in the future and, in the meantime, would like to mention some of the many accomplishments of this year's senior class.
The Class of 2005 comprises 22 individuals with a broad range of talents, including three AP Scholars. This year, 31 percent of our seniors scored 1300 or higher on the SAT, placing at or above the 89th percentile nationally. They have taken honors in regional art, vocal and Tae Kwon Do competitions as well as national competitions in equestrian dressage. Seabury seniors have taken state honors in forensics, appeared in theater performances at school and in the community, and participated in the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.
They are active in Eagle Scouts, Lawrence-Douglas County Promise and the Walk for Life to help fund cancer research. Several students are active in their churches and have attended Boys State or other leadership programs. Our seniors participated in varsity sports -- soccer, volleyball, cross country, basketball, tennis and golf.
Because we are a new and growing school, this year's seniors have played vital roles in developing the culture of our school community by mentoring younger students and helping establish and preserve important Seabury traditions. We are incredibly proud of this class.
The Lawrence Academic All-Star team includes a wonderfully talented group of students. We hope to add names from Bishop Seabury to their ranks in coming years.
