Eleven students from the Chinese Mandarin program at Seton Catholic Preparatory received Young Leadership and Talent Awards presented by Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton during a 35th anniversary ceremony of the Phoenix and Taipei, Taiwan Sister Cities relationship. The Seton students were honored recently at a ribbon cutting ceremony for a new exhibit at Phoenix City Hall by Master Chen Yang Chun, a Taiwan national treasure artist.

Phoenix Sister Cities Taipei Committee Chair Lin Ling Lee selected Seton Catholic Prep for this honor in celebration of the 35th anniversary. Lee presented the Seton students with medals and gifts, including artwork from Master Chen. The Chinese Mandarin course of study at Seton was recognized for inspiring the talents of young leaders to achieve success and express creativity in language, art and calligraphy.

In addition to learning the Chinese language, Seton students participate in hands-on activities with Chinese culture and traditions such as calligraphy, painting, sports, folk arts and crafts, and cultural dances.
