As someone who has been connected to Shenendehowa for decades, I want to reassure families and students that whether or not a person receives an award does not determine that person’s future success in life. For example, one graduate did not receive any awards when he graduated in 1973. He is now the CEO and President of General Electric Africa. Another Shen grad from the ’90’s, although in the top ten of his class, received no award. He is now a cardiologist. I am sure there are innumerable other examples. Be patient and encourage individuality.
