Congratulations to our 2 Students of the week who attend Falmouth Academy!
Bourne resident Kunaal Rajagopal came to Falmouth Academy in the 8th grade and will be a senior in 2015-16.  A member of the National Honor Society, Kunaal has also been elected by the students and faculty to serve as Treasurer of the Student Council in the coming year.  Kunaal has consistently been a Head of School’s List student.  To be named to the Head’s List, a student must earn no C’s and at least three A’s.  Like the second student honored today, Eliza Van Voorhis, Kunaal is an outstanding athlete as well as an excellent student.  He has played 4 years of varsity basketball and was named to the All-League Team in the Cape and Islands League this past year.  He plays AAU basketball and coached this summer at the Falmouth Academy basketball camp.  He hopes to play basketball in college.  Kunaal is also a varsity lacrosse player and has been elected captain of both basketball and lacrosse for next year.  Kunaal is a role model to the younger students at Falmouth Academy, with whom he enjoys spending time.  Next year, he will teach a once-a-week elective, Recreational Games.    
Eliza Van Voorhis, who commutes to Falmouth Academy from Mattapoisett, will be a junior.  Two of her older siblings graduated from the school, and her older sister Charlotte will be a senior.  Eliza was elected Secretary of the Student Council, again by vote of the entire community, and she is also a member of the National Honor Society.  Eliza has been named to the Head of School’s list consistently as well.  With two years to go at the school, Eliza has already played 3 years of varsity soccer, 3 years of varsity lacrosse, and 2 years of varsity basketball.  While she excels in all three sports, and has been named all-league in both basketball and soccer, she truly excels in soccer and hopes to play in college.  She was named the MVP of the Cape and Islands League in soccer this year.  In fact, Falmouth Academy athletes won the league MVP award in all three girls’ sports this past year.  Eliza’s talents are not limited to the classroom and the athletic fields.  She has won several awards for her work in photography and ceramics.
