    Anthony Flanagan 


 2015 Division F IESA Scholar Attitude Award winner


The  criteria for this prestigious award is as follows:   

the student must have maintained a 3.5 or better for their 7th and 8th grade year, they must have been a participant in IESA activities, and they must have displayed outstanding citizenship. 


During Anthony’s middle school career,  he exceeded all expectations in these  three areas while overcoming adversity and becoming  the role model that he is.  An example of Anthony’s outstanding character was during his 7th grade track season.  After learning his relay team qualified for sectionals, he broke his foot.  “After getting over the initial disappointment, I decided that this was a true test of my sportsmanship,” Anthony said, “I chose to still continue to attend practice and to cheer on my teammates as well as the runner who took my place on the relay team.  I believe that participating these last two years in interscholastic activities and learning the importance of teamwork helped me get through the injury.” 


We, here at DMS, couldn’t be more proud of Anthony and know that this is only a stepping stone of many more great achievements for him. 







All forms/checks should be mailed to the high school.  Any questions, please contact Lindsay Wineinger.
