Jessica Lynch is a senior at Nonnewaug High School, and was nominated by her chemistry teacher, Melissa Yard. Here’s why Jessica Lynch was chosen as one of the Chiefs With Character for October 2017:
Jessica consistently worked with a foreign exchange student in my Chemistry class.
She welcomed her classmate from Thailand, introducing her to Nonnewaug. Jessica went out of her way to ensure that her classmate understood what was happening in the classroom, especially through the language barrier.
She never saw the language barrier as a obstacle. Instead, she wanted to see her classmate succeed and knew that her classmate has a lot to offer in return.
