Winton Woods High School Counselor Brad Tash says Franck Djidjeu is in tenth grade but is ahead of his time. “If you were to speak to Mr. Djidjeu and observe his actions, you would think he is already a college student,” said Tash. “Franck’s maturity and good nature are apparent to everyone he meets. Teachers have commented on how nice it is to have such a positive influence in their classes. I challenge you to find a harder working young person. During his time at Winton Woods, Franck has distinguished himself as a top scholar. He has a demanding all honors schedule and has never earned a grade less than an A.”
“Franck is not just impressive in the classroom. While earning perfect grades, he is also a two-sport athlete and works part-time in his mother’s daycare. Franck is from Cameroon and speaks two languages. He has been very valuable in assisting us with French-speaking students who are learning English. Currently, Franck’s mother is in Cameroon for an extended stay, leaving Franck at home to care for his two younger siblings while his father works two jobs.”
“As you can see, Franck is impressive on a variety of levels. His goal is to one day attend medical school, and he is well on his way. I cannot think of a more deserving recipient for the Student of the Month Award.”
