Zoe Dieringer Named State Student of the Year

Lancaster Elementary fifth grader Zoë Dieringer has been selected as the 2018 Louisiana Student of the Year in the Elementary School Division.

“Zoë is a great representative of all the amazing students in our School System,” said Superintendent Trey Folse. “She is a smart, talented and well-rounded student who has many accomplishments both at school and in the community.”

Zoë Dieringer is the quintessential example of a well-rounded student. She was recognized for her LEAP test results by the Duke University Talent Identification Program (TIP) in 2017. Dieringer has maintained a 4.0 GPA in her first six quarters at Lancaster Elementary, while receiving Academic Achievement honors in reading, science and social studies. She was a Student Council Representative, volunteers in the library, serves as a tutor for other students, is a member of the Nutritional Advisory Club, and plays flute in the school band.

Not only is Zoë strong academically, she is also an accomplished ballet dancer. She is a member of the Hammond Ballet Youth Ensemble and she accepted an invitation to attend the American Ballet Theatre Youth Dancer Summer Workshop in New York City. She has been invited to compete at the Youth America Grand Prix and the American Dance and International Ballet Competitions. Zoë is a member of the A Touch of Class competition dance team and has won numerous overall awards for solo and group dances. Zoë hopes to become a professional dancer and later become an astrophysicist and an author.

Dieringer was selected as the Regional Student of the Year last month and St. Tammany Parish Public School System earlier this school year. She was announced state student of the year at the Louisiana State Museum in Baton Rouge at an award ceremony hosted by the State Department of Education.
