Meet Nydira

Class of 2017, Future Doctor

Since joining St. James School in 2013, Nydira has excelled in the classroom—she earned High Honors numerous times, won the Presidential Award for Educational Excellence, snagged the Head of School’s Ambassador Award of Excellence, and became Student of the Week too many times to count. In 2016, she received the Ellis Trust Grant and was a Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Young Scholars National  Semi-Finalist. Nydira’s hard work over the years has paid off! She delivered the commencement address as the class of 2017 Valedictorian and will attend William Penn Charter School in the fall.
