WRITING AWARD GOES TO CAHS' MONIQUE TOUSSAINT

Nov. 9, 2001 – Charlotte Amalie High School senior Monique Toussaint has won an award for "achievement in writing" from the National Council of Teachers of English.
Monique has "determination and extremely strong family support," said her guidance counselor, Shirley Romney. So it was fitting that, since Monique is off-island wearing her hat as treasurer of the local Future Business Leaders of America, her mother spoke about her activities.
Monique's parents, Michael and Jennifer Toussaint, are active parent-teacher association participants, Michael as treasurer of the school-wide PTA and Jennifer as president of the senior class PTA.
Monique's activities include playing in the Rising Stars Steel Orchestra, official scoring for volleyball games, belonging to FBLA, attending the Saturday science academies at the University of the Virgin Islands, and assisting the 5th grade Sunday School teacher at Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church, her mother said in a telephone interview.
Monique recently won a national award from the U.S. Achievement Academy in the field of business education. She will be attending college, and right now has her sights set on becoming an industrial engineer.
These "achievement in writing" awards are given to fewer than 900 students throughout the United States, and this year two awards have been given in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The other award went to Good Hope School senior Meryl Brady. (See article in The St. Croix Source at menu choice Schools:.)
