Congratulations to Fridley High School (FHS) juniors Palak Bhakta and Deodatus Gbadoe who earned the Harvard Book Award and Yale Book Award, respectively. Recipients of these awards must be outstanding students in the junior class who display excellence in scholarship and high character, combined with achievement in other fields.

“I am so proud of Palak and Deodatus for their hard work and dedication,” said Patty Hand, principal of FHS. “These awards exemplify the characteristics of the IB Learner profile, like being internationally minded, caring for others and being risk takers.”

Congratulations to Palak and Deodatus on this big honor!
