The Michèle Shoemaker-Liebel Scholarships commend students who have excelled in French (the Academic Excellence award) and those who have demonstrated a love and enthusiasm for French language and culture (the Love of French award). It is named in honor of Michèle Shoemaker-Liebel, a McLean resident and French native who taught and tutored French to elementary and high school students in the McLean area before her passing in 2005.

This year’s Academic Excellence award went to Erika Stadsklev, while Jennifer Horowitz and Zachary Spahr received the Love of French awards.
