An 8-year-old Ghanaian student, Maame Akua Aseda Manukure, has received a certificate of honour from her U.S school after topping her class with distinction.
Maame Akua joined the Trinity Elementary School in New Rochelle just a month before district-wide exams in October 2019, yet still managed to pass all her subjects with distinction and top the entire district.
She became the first Ghanaian student to top all students in the New Rochelle District in the past decade.
For her achievement, Maame Akua received a certificate of honour from the school.
“Maame Akua Aseda Manukure arrived here in New Rochelle in October 2019 from Ghana. She was welcomed into 3-Quinn by all of the students but within a month Maame has become a Maths and Language Arts star!” the Principal of Trinity Elementary School, Mr Hilderbrand said.
“Her outstanding performance in the 3rd-grade exams placed her as the first Ghanaian female student to ever top all students in New Rochelle District over the past decade,” he added.
Congratulations to our little rising star!
