Jana Richter '15 Selected for Missouri Scholars Academy

This summer, Jana Richter ‘15 will attend the Missouri Scholars Academy, a three-week residential program for academically gifted high school students from across the state of Missouri.

The MSA enables students to develop intellectually and personally, giving them a forum to meet talented fellow students from across the state. Jana will enjoy classes, leadership activities and service events as she proudly represents Duchesne.

Jana has nominated Mrs. Karen Schaffner to be honored at a Teacher Appreciation Day at the University of Missouri on June 21. This is an opportunity for students to say "thanks" to teachers who have been particularly influential to them along the way.

There is a reception and dinner for the honored teachers. Following the banquet, teachers will meet with the scholars who nominated them, and then all will attend a presentation featuring John Dau, author of “The Lost Boys of Sudan.”
