Three Jr. Bills earned first, second and third place in the 11th annual Chinese Bridge Competition, hosted by the Confucius Institute at Webster University on March 14. The new format of this year's event, which required much preparation, consisted of a prepared three-minute speech, a talent show and a one-minute impromptu speech.
Alfie Arun '19, Bryce Van Bree '20 and Matthew LaFaver '19 were recognized with first, second and third place honors, respectively. In addition, Yude Huang, SLUH's Chinese teacher, earned the Excellent Guide Teacher Award.
"It is a blessing to work at SLUH so that I can meet so many talented and dedicated students," says Huang. "Thanks to their hard work, effort and commitment, they have made me a better teacher that I could have ever imagined."
