Megan Ciaglo- Academic Standout 3/22/21

Academic Standout for March 22nd, 2020

Recipient: Megan Ciaglo

Presented by: Donna Brewster

The KMS teaching faculty is proud to present Megan Ciaglo as this week’s Academic Standout recognition. Megan is a Winter-Term Freestyle athlete, who comes to KMS from Glastonbury, Connecticut. Megan was enthusiastically nominated by several of her teachers this week, each of which noted this young woman’s grit, determination, and resilience.


Beginning the nomination process, as well as presenting for Megan during our all-school meeting this past Monday, was Winter-Term Math and Science teacher Donna Brewster. Donna writes, “Grit, determination and perseverance are the hallmarks of this particular athlete. After setbacks in her freestyle skiing, Megan has been able to successfully refocus her efforts and has done a tremendous job at her studies. She’s always prompt to class, even when it’s remote, her assignments are thoughtfully done, she always contributes in class and gets clarification when needed, and has improved significantly throughout her time in winter term.”


Winter-Term Humanities teacher Jessica Sardelli seconded Megan’s nomination. Jessica states, “Mental toughness is built through resilience and perseverance through challenging times.

Megan has endured her share of challenging circumstances and has since pushed herself back! Meg has been great at communicating and took no shortcuts returning to sport, curriculum, and injury recovery.” Jessica also offered a quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. that she felt summarized the type of individual Megan is. The quote states, “The Ultimate measure of a man [or woman] is not where he stands in moments of convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

Winter-Term Math and Science teacher Hurley Cavacas also put forth a nomination for Megan. Hurley reflects, “Megan showed true resilience after her injury while skiing. As soon after her surgery she could, she worked diligently to get her work caught up. She was not afraid to ask questions for information that she missed and excelled on the work she completed.”

Congratulations, Megan! We are very proud of you!
