Twins of Wrentham were among 23 students who graduated from Grade 8 at Dayspring Christian Academy of Attleboro during its annual commencement exercises held June 9 at the adjacent South Attleboro Assembly of God Church.
Aidan and Anneka Ignatius, both of Wrentham, received diplomas from DCA Administrator Frank Rydwanksky during the 90-minute program. The Class of 2014 is one of the largest graduating classes in recent school annals.
The class valedictorian, Anneka Ignatius delivered an inspiring speech to her fellow graduates, urging them to “take any failure you have in life and turn it into a new triumph.” She was recognized for earning membership during the past two years in DCA’s chapter of the National Junior Honor Society; for being included on the school’s All-A Honor Roll for the 2013-14 academic year; and for special academic achievements in English, mathematics and science.
Anneka also participated in the 2013 National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C., sponsored by the Association of Christian Schools International.
Aidan Ignatius was included on DCA’s A & B Honor Roll this year.
The son and daughter of David and Anne David-Ignatius of Wrentham, the twins will part ways next year in high school. Anneka Ignatius will attend the Montrose School of Medfield, while Aidan will attend Xaverian Brothers High School of Westwood.
