ASU Student Among Nation’s Top Athletes In Swimming Competitions

ujinOne of our ASU students has made a name for herself in the world of swimming. Ujin, a 3B student, started swimming in 2012 at age 6. In 2013, she took a first place and second place in events at the Mongolian Amateur Swimming Association’s Competition. The following year, she received three gold medals, a silver medal and a team bronze medal in the Engui Tal LLC sponsored 4th Annual Competition.
Last November, she returned to the Mongolian Amateur Swimming Asso-ciation’s Competition in Erdenet city and won four gold medals, even earning third rank among adult ujin2athletes in the breaststroke event. Most recently, she participated in the State Youth Championship in Ulaanbaatar in March and won a gold medal, a silver medal and two bronze medals. In just three years, she has earned eight gold, two silver and three bronze medals and has risen to the title of 2nd rank athlete. Congratula-tions on your outstanding accomplishments, Ujin! Keep swimming, and maybe we will see you someday among the Olympic athletes.

NHS Induction 2014-15

The National Honor Society, a United States organization, founded in 1921, serves to honor students who have demonstrated excellence in several areas. NHS was formed to create enthusiasm for scholarship; to stimulate a desire to render service; to promote leadership; and to develop character in the students of secondary schools. The National Honor Society challenges students to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service. The American School of Ulaanbaatar was accepted into this prestigious organization in 2013. Including the members at ASU, there are more than 1 million students involved in NHS all over the world.

ASU held its third induction ceremony on the 15th of January, 2015. Through this honorable event, eight new members were officially inducted into the National Honor Society after a long application process. These members exhibit outstanding scholarship, character, service, and leadership attributes.

The induction ceremony started with the arrival of the parents, teachers, new inductees, and old members of the National Honor Society. Mr. Mallory opened the ceremony with a speech and was followed by several other teachers. The ceremony consisted of several thought provoking speeches about each of the four pillars.  As they spoke, the old members, Ariunzaya, Taivanbat, and Udval, lit five candles, four for the each sections of NHS, scholarship, service, leadership and character and the fifth candle, for the eternal flame of the National Honor Society. The new members each lit a personal candle to signify their commitment to the eternal flame that is the National Honor Society. The new inductees include Anar (12), Bolor (12), Ju-Yong (12), Tergel (12), Jenette (11), Pandu (11), Enkh-Ariun (10), and Yumchigmaa (10).

Once the ceremony was over, the congregation was invited for delicious snacks and refreshments provided by our school cafeteria. The repast gave the new inductees and their proud parents a chance for pictures and questions about the prestige organization.

With the new inductees, the National Honor Society has been able to do more projects. A month after the induction ceremony, NHS was able to run another successful food drive. With the help of our amazing elementary and secondary schools the National Honor Society received enough food to fill over 100 bags for families in The Dump. We look forward to our Spring Project that will start sometime in April.
