Derrick Andress and Mercedes Wisyanski are two senior class student members at Charleroi High School who will be recognized by SHASDA (South Hills Area School Districts Association) on Saturday, April 30th at the Hilton Garden Inn at Southpointe, Canonsburg, PA as our District winners of this year’s SHASDA award.

This award is designed to identify students who have demonstrated significant improvement and/or overcome obstacles in attaining their current status; it is designed to recognize growth and improvement.

The nominees are selected by a team that includes administrators and faculty members who identify students who meet the above criteria. A variety of factors are considered as the final two are determined.

Derrick’s career interests are in the auto body industry. Mercedes is interested in pursuing a career in Criminal Justice.

They both were overwhelmingly selected by our staff and are worthy of the recognition of the award.

Congratulations Derrick and Mercedes!
