MEDWAY — Superintendent Armand Pires is pleased to announce that he has presented Medway High School senior Ram Tysoe with the Massachusetts Association of School Superintendents (M.A.S.S.) Academic Excellence Award.
Tysoe was nominated by the faculty and staff at Medway High School and was presented with the honor at last night’s Medway School Committee meeting.
The M.A.S.S. Academic Excellence Award is presented by the superintendent to a deserving student in each school district throughout Massachusetts. To be considered for the award, the student must be a member of the senior class with a cumulative GPA that places them in the top fifth percentile of their class. The nominee must also consistently demonstrate traits of leadership, social responsibility, respect for their fellow students and involvement in various aspects of the school community.
Tysoe has excelled both academically and musically while at Medway High School. He has maintained above-average grades throughout his academic career while taking Honors and Advanced Placement courses. He is a member of the National Honor Society and has previously been awarded the University of Rochester George Eastman Young Leaders Award for his leadership activities at school and in the community.
Tysoe has also been a member of the school chorus for the past four years and is the longest-standing member of his chorus section. Outside of school, Tysoe attends voice and piano lessons. He is also involved in the Central District of the Massachusetts Music Educators Association.
“I would like to congratulate Ram for all of his achievements while at Medway High School,” Superintendent Pires said. “Ram has shown exemplary dedication to his education while continuing to foster his love for music throughout high school. We are proud to have him as a part of our school community and we were happy to be able to recognize him for all of his hard work with this award.”
As Tysoe prepares for college in the fall, he plans to pursue a degree in music. He hopes to one day write music for video games, movies or commercials and to become a conductor.
