Awards and Recognitions
We are proud of the accomplishments of our current Meade students and Meade alum. Below are just a few of our more recent awards and recognitions.
Student Wins First Place in Scholarship Essay Contest
Madison Medley, a Meade High School senior and IB Diploma student, recently won first place in the Equal Justice Initiative Racial Justice Scholarship contest for her essay. During the unveiling of a historical lynching marker commemorating five African Americans killed within the county, she was recognized by Mayor Gavin Buckley as she received her scholarship and read from her essay.
Madison reads from her first place essay, speaking passionately about her love for Meade High and the continued prevalence of racial injustice.
Students and Faculty Invited to Attend Mid-Autumn Festival at the Chinese Embassy
On Friday, September 6, 2019, several members of the Meade High School community, a Confucius Institute Member through the University of Maryland, were invited by Minister of Education to celebrate the start of the Mid-Autumn Festival at the Chinese Embassy hosted by the Chinese Ambassador himself, Cui Tiankai.
There were so many wonderful things for our students who attended, but one of the most memorable was watching Meade High student Shania and her sister Sa'Meara who were interviewed (in Chinese) by the Chinese News which would be aired later on in China.
The relationship between Meade High and the Chinese Embassy continues to grow. We are very grateful for their support along with that of the Confucius Institute of Maryland as we continue to grow our Chinese program and introduce our students to true Chinese culture.
