Students Honored at McCallie

Upper School Awards Day

Seniors Julian Nunally and Eric Wolf have received McCallie’s top two awards.

The school’s senior class of 2013, one touted by school administrators as exceptional, was well represented in May at the annual Awards Day.

Faculty and staff honored boys who have excelled in all facets of school life at McCallie. The top three awards — The Grayson Medal, the Campbell Award and the Keo-Kio Distinguished Teacher Award — were presented.

Julian Nunally, a day student from Chattanooga, is the winner of the Grayson Medal. Eric Wolf, a day student from Cleveland, received the Campbell Award.

The Grayson Medal is considered the school’s highest honor, given to the senior whose character and actions most embody the heart of McCallie’s mission. The winner is selected by a vote of the Upper School student body, faculty, the Senate and Student Council.

The Campbell Award is presented to the Grayson Medal runner-up.

This year’s Distinguished Teacher recipient is Science chair Cissy May, a member of the faculty since 1983.

Day one of the Upper School Awards focused primarily on outstanding achievement in various classroom and academic settings. The second day was devoted to achievements in extracurricular activities and honored boys with exceptional character and leadership traits.

Local students receive award from U.S. Achievement Academy

Wyatt Siclare, son of Caesar and Sherry Siclare, and Ryder Morris, son of Jason and Shantae Morris, have been recognized for academic achievement as United States National Honor Student Award winners.

Ryder is the grandson of Dan and Deanie Phillips of Soddy-Daisy, Bruce Whitten of Cleveland, and Bill and Linda Morris of Cleveland.

Wyatt and Ryder, who attend Ocoee Middle School, will appear in the United States Achievement Academy’s Official Yearbook which is published nationally.

“Recognizing and supporting our youth is more important thatn ever before in America’s history. Certainly, United States Achievement Academy winners should be congratulated and appreciated for their dedication to excellence and achievement,” said Dr. George Stevens, founder of the United States Achievement Academy.

The USAA National Honor Student Awards provide honor students with many benefits and services and is a great tribute to a student’s dedication, talent and ability.
