On Monday, November 8th Vinton County High School Spanish students attended the OSBA Conference in Columbus, Ohio to showcase the Seal of Biliteracy Program. Five years ago, Vinton County High School started offering Spanish to 8th grade students in order to create a Spanish 5 level. Two years later, VCHS partnered with Rio Grande McArthur Center to strengthen opportunities for the students in the Spanish program and reach Seal of Biliteracy proficiency through dual credit CCP courses. Now, the program has earned state recognition for student success as they raised the bar for the Seal of Biliteracy achievement. Asa Davidson, Cassandra Mayers, Courtney King and Tomi Schweikert did an amazing job representing VCHS at OSBA in the company of Señora Smith, JJ Milliken and Misty Napier. Congrats to all for facilitating a pathway for continued success. Click more+ for pictures!
