Mr. Hilderbrand, the Principal of the Trinity Elementary School, who broke the news to the parents of the child, said he was impressed with her performance considering the duration that she had spent in the school.

“Maame Akua Aseda Manukure arrived here in New Rochelle in October 2019 from Ghana. She was welcomed into 3-Quinn by all of the students but within a month Maame has become a Maths and Language Arts star!” he said.

“Her outstanding performance in the 3rd grade exams placed her as the first Ghanaian female student to ever top all students in New Rochelle District over the past decade,” he added.
