International Education Awards

Five high school students have been awarded the 2007 Youth Prizes for Excellence in International Education by the New York City-based Asia Society, a nonprofit organization that works to strengthen ties between Asian countries and the United States, and New York City-based Goldman Sachs Foundation, a philanthropy that promotes excellence and innovation in education. The students were selected based on their ability to demonstrate an understanding of international affairs and each will receive a $10,000 scholarship. This year’s recipients are Jacob Bredthauer, Omaha, Neb., Yena Jun, Hackensack, N.J., Chelsea Lee, Port Charlotte, Fla., Junyao Peng, Elk Grove, Calif., and Suruchi Srikanth, Irving, Texas.

Peter LoJacono, a teacher of Italian foreign language at Hutchinson Central Technical High School in Buffalo, N.Y., was recently named 2007 Teacher of the Year by the Washington-based National Italian American Foundation, a nonprofit organization that promotes the history and heritage of Italian-American culture. Mr. LoJacono was recognized for his dedication to incorporating a wide variety of cultural events into classroom activities. In recognition of this achievement, Mr. LoJacono will receive a continuing education stipend to study in Italy during the summer of 2009.
