2014 Goessl Book Prize Winners

 

Books Awarded to Outstanding Graduating High School Seniors

Twenty-one of the St. Louis area’s best students of German have received the eleventh annual Goessl Memorial Book Prize awarded to graduating high school seniors. The awards are supported by funds given in honor of the late Dr. Alfred Goessl, German teacher emeritus at the University of Missouri-St. Louis.


This year’s book is the newly published Dictionary for German as a Foreign Language from Langenscheidt.  Congratulations to the following students and their teachers who nominated them.


Dr. Ingeborg Goessl expressed her congratulations received to the students who the book prize named in honor of her late husband.  “When reading letters like these, I realize that as long as there are students like these and the teachers to teach them there is hope for the future.  My special thanks go to all those fine teachers and their exceptional students.”
