OHS Freshman Named Student of the Year

By Mac Fogler

Congratulations to Oak Hall freshman, Spencer Fuhr! Fuhr won the Florida Foreign Language Association 2019 Middle School Student of the Year Award for his fantastic work in Chinese. He has been taking high school Chinese classes since sixth grade. Fuhr’s love of language has led him to start learning Latin and German as well.

Former Oak Hall Chinese teacher Ginger Lin recommended him for the award, writing, “I have come to appreciate Spencer for his love for languages and science. While many junior scholars could perform well on language tasks and enjoy the projects in classes, the way Spencer goes above and beyond challenging himself to create and immerse himself in a language- and culture-rich environment outside of classrooms is what sets him apart from other outstanding junior scholars.” Keep making the Eagles proud Spencer!
