In full support of our high school faculty Tyson Wai has been nominated as this year’s winner of the 2012 AmCham Charitable Foundation Prize Book Award. Tyson has unquestionable talent and ability. His exceptional character, leadership, and high involvement in our after school programs and community service have, for three years, been a shining example to our school. Courageously, Tyson continues to achieve our Expected School-Wide Learning Results with refreshing resolve.
Academically, Tyson has earned a 3.87 G.P.A. amidst a very difficult course schedule including three Advanced Placement courses in Biology, Psychology, and English Language and a strong focus for university preparation with his SAT results. He is well on his way to becoming an AP scholar.
Tyson’s outstanding personal skills and attributes are most visible in sports, Model United Nations, Debate Club, his Peer Tutoring Coordinator role, and Treasurer of our school’s Student Council. These areas demonstrate his outstanding critical thinking and inclusive interpersonal skills as well as his concern for the global world, that are so attractive and endearing across the school. Valiantly, his contributions in leadership, academic scholarship and service are highly regarded. It is a joy to award Tyson the AmCham Prize Book Award.

A prize book and check for HK$1,000 is presented to each awarded student in the next to graduating class who combine excellence in scholarship with achievements in community service, leadership, and other related fields.
