Ms. Brady nominates Sam Chapman for Crusader of the Week for Special Topics in History (Holocaust Studies). First and foremost, Sam is an absolute delight to have in class. He is courteous, respectful, mature, and always comes to class with a desire to learn. Our course on the Holocaust is challenging as it is an intense topic that requires a great deal of maturity, commitment, and empathy throughout the year. Sam meets and exceeds these expectations. On a daily basis, he is engaged with the material, listens with interest and intent, displays respect and concern for the testimonies of survivors, and expresses great sensitivity towards the topic through in depth examinations of one of the darkest periods of humanity. Thank you Sam for your presence and strength of character! Keep up the stellar work!
