Catherine Wielgasz, a Northern Chautauqua Catholic School graduate and the valedictorian of the 2012 graduating class of Silver Creek High School, visited NCCS to give a presentation to students in Grades 5 and 6 about her recent study abroad trip to China. Wielgasz put together a slideshow full of pictures of her trip and facts about the Chinese culture. She also discussed currency, food, school, dress, and other Chinese traditions and landmarks. Wielgasz allowed students to ask questions, examine souvenirs and money, try on traditional clothing, and she taught the students how to use chop sticks.
Wielgasz is currently a freshman attending Castleton State College in Vermont on a full tuition scholarship, majoring in environmental science.
