These Plymouth High School students have earned Wisconsin Global Scholar Certificates for meeting extensive criteria established by the state
Posted June 5, 2017
Five Plymouth High School seniors – Nadine Dragan, Josh Hafemann, Abigail Phelps, Myah Palechek and Madelyn Mueller – have earned Wisconsin Global Scholar Certificates.
PHS helped lead the way on this state Department of Public Instruction initiative, as the PHS Global Studies Certificate served as a model for the DPI certificate. The PHS certificate was created by Spanish teacher Laura Koebel several years ago after she adapted a similar program at Milwaukee’s University School to the PHS curriculum and wove in qualities important for global citizens.
The first PHS Global Studies Certificates were awarded to Kate Gavin, Fred Phelps and Kaitlyn Schneider in 2013, and 2014 PHS grad Kathryn Boening received one of the first seven state certificates.
