Washington Park Panthers have two more academic champions to add to their list: Deshawn Bruce and Austin Rosa.

The boys were awarded gold medals May 16 at the Wisconsin State French Competition.

In order to compete, both Bruce and Rosa had to memorize poems in French and then flawlessly recite the poems in front of judges.

Congratulations to Bruce and Rosa.

Love what we do?
