Bethel Park High School German Club announced the 2020 recipients of two of its annual academic awards.

Freshman Cody Hendrych-Bondra received the Dietrich Award of Academic Excellence, which is presented annually to the high school’s Most Outstanding German Student. Cody was an Honors German II student this school year and had the top academic performance of the year. Recently, he also received the Congress-Bundestag youth exchange scholarship to study in Germany next year.

Senior Sam Donaldson, an AP German V student, was honored as this year’s Most Outstanding Chapter Member of the Bethel Park High School Chapter of the Delta Epsilon Phi German National Honor Society.

The German Club also awards a summer study scholarship to Millersville University Summer German Camp, but was unable to do so this year because the camp will not be held because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The students are taught by Bethel Park High School German teacher Christopher Tobias.
