Last September, Santiago Mazoy, Alessandra Massa and Silke Kuhn began their school year at St. Michaels University School. The three finalists in our inaugural The Best School Year Ever™ contest instantly immersed themselves in the school culture – joining sports teams, clubs and councils; making new friends; and filling their schedules with classes they enjoyed.
Now that the school year is over, their best school year ever is also complete.
Check out the video above to see what they did this year!
Next year, Santiago and Silke will return to SMUS for their Grade 12 year. Santiago will continue to live in boarding alongside Lizzie, Bryce and Shalese, the winning finalists in our 2015-16 edition of The Best School Year Ever. Both Santiago and Silke will take on greater leadership roles next year, as their peers selected Santiago to be the head of his boarding house, and Silke was elected to sit on the school’s Prefect Council. We’re looking forward to seeing them thrive in these roles!
Alessandra is off to Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, MA to major in international relations, with a minor in Russian studies. She has big dreams for her future, as her ultimate goal is to become the first female US Ambassador to Russia. Congratulations and we wish you the best of luck, Alessandra!
We look forward to the start of 2015-16 school year, when we welcome the trio of BSYE finalists and run the third iteration of The Best School Year Ever contest.
