St. Benedict student honored with Chinese language learning award
St. Benedict seventh-grader, Justin Maloney, has been awarded the 2020 Award for Excellence in Chinese Language Learning. This award is given each year to the top Chinese language students in Western New York by the University at Buffalo Confucius Institute. Awardees are usually honored during the University of Buffalo’s annual Chinese New Year celebration, but this year it was postponed due to Covid-19. Justin will receive a $100.00 Barnes and Noble gift card in recognition of his accomplishment.
