Miss Sydney Sheetz received the Education Foundation’s “John & Laila Silan Salutatorian Scholarship.” In addition to becoming the Class of 2020 Salutatorian, Sydney was Class President since her sophomore year, as well as a member of the Student Council and National Honor Society.
Sydney said that she is happiest when others are happy. She stated that receiving the Silan award was particularly important to her, noting that former KAHS Coach Silan and his wife Laila, a KASD Jr. High School history teacher, dedicated their working lives to Kutztown students through the training they provided in both sports and academics. Sydney will attend Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, PA this fall, majoring in Neuroscience. The Education Foundation congratulates Sydney and wishes her continued success in achieving her goals.
