Posted on 12/11/2019

Haley Lederer

An elite dancer who has competed at the national level, a nationally competitive kart racer, and an accomplished student and leader at Millis High, Haley Lederer is an outstanding choice for the NESDEC Award for Academic Growth and Leadership.  Haley was vice president of our student student council as a sophomore and junior and is now president of our student council executive board senior year. She has been an active participant in our Amnesty International and peer leaders organizations, and held a job outside of school.


You won’t find a grade less than an A on Haley’s transcript, which is outstanding when you look at the challenging course load she has taken, which includes seven AP courses.  A member of our National Honor Society, and a Spanish Immersion student, Haley was recognized last year by our faculty with the Wellesley College Book Award, and has earned numerous other awards from her academic teachers along the way, including awards in Spanish, AP US History and for excellence in online learning. lederer & NG Lederer & SC


Elizabeth Shearns

A highly decorated, nationally competitive gymnast, Elizabeth Shearns has spent an immense amount of time outside of school dedicated to the sport.  Even with her busy gymnastics schedule, Elizabeth has found a host of ways to not only get involved at Millis High, but to be a leader amongst her peers.  This makes her a great choice for the NESDEC Award for Academic Growth and Leadership. Elizabeth is secretary of our National Honor Society, has been a class rep throughout high school, and this year is serving as co-president of her class.  She’s president of our chemistry club and has been an active member of our Leo’s Club. Elizabeth has also been co-director of the Special Olympics program at her gymnastics club.  


Elizabeth has been a straight-A student throughout high school and recognized in our school with a number of awards including the Barnard Book Award, along with excellence awards in art, Spanish and English. Shearns & NG Shearns & SC
