Claremont High School students Katie Truttmann and Mayo Ou were recently awarded all-expense paid scholarships for a language education and cultural immersion program at the Goethe Institut in Karlsruhe, Germany. The program runs from June 30 to July 20.

The opportunity is extended each year to two students enrolled in German III or above to recognize their dedication and proficiency of German.

“Being selected for this scholarship is a dream come true,” Katie said in the April 13 CUSD newsletter. “It validates all the hard work and shows that immersing yourself in a new culture and language is truly rewarding.”

CHS German teacher Jennifer Tsai encouraged the students to apply for the opportunity. “Her support and the hands-on learning approach in our German classes were key to winning this scholarship,” Mayo said.

Claremont High is one of 14 U.S. schools in the PASCH initiative: As a PASCH School, CHS is part of a network of partner schools across the world aiming to promote German language and culture. Students participate in activities such as sending postcards to other German learners and learning how to code with Calliope mini.

Next fall, CHS will send two students to compete at the PASCH Triathlon in Colorado.
