A Dean’s Lister is defined as a student of a college or university who achieves high grades during the academic year or in some, every semester. Others call these students the high achievers or even the nerds. In every college or university, they have their own standards for students to meet to be in the Dean’s List – in the standards of Southville, you have to reach a grade point average or GPA of 3.0 with no grade lower than 2.0. For some, this sounds ridiculous and even vaguely important since the mad college life is taking its course … [Read more]

Valedictory Speech of Gen Mark Tanno (Grade School Class 2011)

A pleasant morning to all of you my dear classmates, teachers, friends, and all to all the parents here.

Ms. Avic, my name is Gen Mark Tanno. I am answering the question you asked when I first came to Southville.

And as I look back to that fateful day, seven years ago, I know that standing here today is

For the non-bookworms, here’s the thing about books: they are great company during “me time”. Not only will they transport you to fictional worlds, but also infuse your mind with valuable lessons about life.

Great news to college students! The … [Read more]
