Citizen Artist Of The Month
This Month's Citizen Artist is our Junior Instrumental Major Brian Ross. Brian is a 95 average student and a National Honor Society member (ARISTA). Brian is a fantastic film student, a passionate storyteller, and talented editor.
Brian Ross is a dedicated French horn player, and an exemplary science student. Last year, he earned one of only a handful of mastery scores on the chemistry Regents exam, and he did it modestly and honestly. He is the only student who regularly reports to his teacher what science concept he learned in class that day in another science teacher’s class. It brings us joy that a passion for learning is alive and thriving within this young man.
Brian is a persistent, hardworking student who demonstrates compassion for his peers. We want to showcase Brian Ross for displaying what it truly means to be a Citizen Artist.
