Student has bright future

I am very impressed by the content of the Dec. 2 letter written by Solenn Madevon, a Grade 12 student at Pen High

I am responding to the Dec. 2 letter “Media used as a political weapon” written by Solenn Madevon, a Grade 12 student at Pen High.

I am very impressed by the content, the clarity of articulation, the cogent presentation of the writer’s points and the author’s intelligent grasp of and presentation of past and current political issues, writers, situations and events.

We often read that high school English students are not prepared for university writing; in fact, that many university students cannot pass a basic English exam. This article refutes that myth.

Kudos to Solenn’s teachers and significant others that have produced another potential Noam Chomsky. I predict a bright future for this student in (political) journalism.

Bravo I say, a standing ovation for you Solenn!
