Breck's Athena Award Winner - Emily Zumwinkle
Each year an Athena Award winner is chosen from each school and named the “Outstanding Senior Female Athlete,” based on excellence in individual sports or for participation and accomplishments in team sports. This year’s Athena Award winner from Breck is Emily Zumwinkle. Emily has been a three-sport participant since 7th grade. She will finish the year with the Breck Girls Golf Team this spring. Emily will join the Gopher Women's Hockey Team at the University of Minnesota in the fall of 2021. Congratulations, Emily!
On Wednesday morning, Upper School students listened to Ugandan climate justice advocate Evelyn Acham.
MS science students collaborated on a climate change research project earlier this year. Their teacher, Ms. Alexander, created a scenario for her students that opened up opportunities for deep conversations about climate justice and helped them understand the complicated nature of negotiating resolutions while also internalizing the need for immediate action to mitigate its impact.
This year, the Breck Math League Team took second in Class 1A at the 2021 Minnesota State High School Mathematics League State Tournament. In a year of virtual practices, meets, and tournaments that literally crossed the International Date Line, the team stuck together and retained their second-place standing for a second year.
