Kudos to Adney Silva '18, who received a "Rising Star" award at the Brooklyn Reporter's "40 Under 40" event on June 16th!
Students who received the award were chosen based on how they are already making a mark on the community, whle at the same time excelling at school.
“I was pretty happy about being nominated,” said Silva, who, as a sophomore, is the captain of Xaverian’s Speech and Debate team and also participates in drama, music and campus ministry, and is a member of the wrestling team. “My assistant principal told me how it’s usually a high school senior that gets nominated. He asked if they could nominate a sophomore and they let him. I’m really happy and excited.”
