The CT Association of Schools established the Scholar-Leader Banquet in 1985 to give public recognition to one boy and one girl from each middle level school in Connecticut who have distinguished themselves in scholarship and leadership in school and the community.
This year’s recipients of the CAS Scholar-Leader Award are Sybaljan Tahirova and Logan Brock.
Logan Brock is a committed learner that achieves at the highest academic levels across all subjects. He is self-motivated, inquisitive and produces high quality work. He takes his studies seriously and assists his classmates. He is the 8th Grade Class President, a member of the National Junior Honor Society, a peer mediator, and actively serves as a writing tutor. He has been a member of the Math Counts Team for the last three years – including serving as captain this year leading the team to the state competition for the first time. Logan plays oboe in the concert band & learned an additional instrument, alto saxophone, in order to participate in the Jazz Band. He is a leader in both ensembles and takes his participation very seriously.
Sybaljan Tahirova is a top academic performer who goes above and beyond in the classroom. She is internally motivated and thoughtful, and quietly leads by example – earning her the respect of adults and her peers. Sybaljan is a member of the National Junior Honor Society, serving as the Treasurer and is a member of Hope for Haiti. Sybaljan is a thoughtful writer who was honored last year in Hartford for her writing in the CHET Dream Big essay contest. In addition to her own excellent writing, she has served as a writing tutor, helping younger students improve their writing craft. Sybaljan is valuable part of the Eagle’s Eye, PCS’s literary magazine. She can be counted on to do any task put before her.
It is with great pleasure that the Pomfret Community School Middle School Teachers recognize Sybiljan Tahirova and Logan Brock as this year’s recipients of the CAS Scholar Leader Award.
