Woodstock Board of Education recognizes student achievements

The Woodstock Community Unit School District 200 Board of Education honored two students for outstanding academic and sporting achievements at its Oct. 23 meeting.

Woodstock High School senior Luis Gomez-Diaz was honored for being named a National Hispanic Recognition Program Scholar. Gomez-Diaz began his education as an English-language learner before transitioning into the district’s dual language program. To be named a scholar, a student has to score in the top 2.5 percent of all Hispanic and Latino students who took the PSAT/NMSQT test. About 5,000 students of the 250,000 Hispanic/Latino juniors who took the test are recognized as academically exceptional students.

Northwood Middle School eighth-grader Mark Duenas was recognized for qualifying for the Illinois Elementary School Association State Track Meet. Duenas placed 10th at the Middle School Sectional on Oct. 6 in McHenry. He ran the 2-mile race in 11:55. At the IESA State Meet in Normal, Duenas finished with a time of 11:58.
