The National Council of Teachers of English has awarded seven Poly High School students its highest honor for writing. This is the largest group selected from any high school in the U.S. The winners include Lisa Seng, Adam Greenwald, Sharleen Higa, Elizabeth Wu, Michael Guardabascio, Laurel Grzesik and Danielle Roubinov. Their writing samples were evaluated by three judges. Last year Poly had six winners. For one high school to have seven is an unprecedented accomplishment. Their English teachers are Laura Leaney and John Arfwedson.
