Alex Hoberman Nominated For Staples Key

The 2008 tri-captain was one of 3 finalists for Staples’ most prestigious honor.  Alex was selected by the Staples staff, based on his service to Staples (including president of Student Assembly), his extracurricular activities (such as mentoring a pair of autistic boys), his leadership and his outstanding personality.

The Staples Key was presented to Sarah Fox — but being nominated is a tremendous honor indeed.

Also at the awards ceremony this week, graduating goalkeeper Adam Liu was awarded the David and Geri Epstein Private Foundation Community Education Scholarship.  That’s a big one — worth $10,000 a year, for 4 years.

Other awards presented at the ceremony:

  • Advanced Placement Scholar (for achieving scores of 3 or more on at least 3 AP tests):  Alex Hoberman, Adam Liu, Sanders McNair
  • World Language Department Award of Excellence in Chinese:  Adam Liu
  • English Department Frank Weiner Award:  Nick Cion
  • Emory University Book Award:  Nick Cion
  • Certificate of Achievement for Scoring in the Top 5% on the American Invitational Mathematics Exam:  Matt Silver (the only freshman honored at the entire awards ceremony)

Congratulations to all Staples soccer award winners!
