Six Auburn Mountainview High School students in Patty Eckelman’s accounting class scored in the top 25th percentile of the U.S. Department of Treasury’s inaugural National Financial Literacy Challenge, a new initiative recommended by the President’s Advisory Council on Financial Literacy.
The super six were: Katerina Buchova, Doug Clair, Timothy Gilmore, John Mayhew, Michael Scharer and John Tague.
More than 46,000 high school students took on the Challenge from late April to mid-May.
The Auburn School District Board of Directors recognized Debbi Capponi-Glidewell, fifth-grade teacher at Arthur Jacobsen Elementary School, for her outstanding service. Capponi-Glidewell believes preparing students to become part of a team, as well as individual thinkers and decision-makers, is one of her most important roles as a fifth-grade teacher. “As teachers we try to impress upon the students that they need to make the right decisions for themselves as well as understand how it affects others in society,” she said. … The board also recognized Amber Stanley, a senior at West Auburn High School, for being an outstanding student.
