he beginning of high
school can be a very
scary time. Everything
is new; everything is different.
There are new people, new ac-
tivities and new pressures.
But, there is something that
can help a student make it
through — friends.
Marc Blackman, David
Tessler and Michael Weiss
know this very well. These
three young men have been
good friends since they shared
some classes in the 10th
grade. They have known each
other as early as the seventh
grade, but it was high school
that brought them together.
Not only are they the best of
friends, they all share may
talents, achievements and
desires. They don't work at be-
ing alike. "It is just a coin-
cidence," said Tessler.
Recently, these young men
were graduated from West
Bloomfield High School, all
with honors. Blackman and
Weiss were valedictorians (all
As) and Tessler was the
salutatorian (one B). This
similarity is just the beginn-
ing. While in high school, they
all were elected to the Na-
tional Honor Society and Phi
Beta Kappa. They also were
nominees for the prestigious
University of Michigan
Regents Alumni Scholarship,
but Weiss was the only
recipient.

Not only do they excel
academically, but they all give
of themselves as active
members of Beth Abraham
Hillel Moses United
Synagogue Youth. In addition,
they all went on to assume
leadership positions.
Blackman has served as the
chapter president, while
Tessler was Central Region
USY president and Weiss was
an international board
member. While in USY,
Tbssler and Weiss were named
as Polster winners. Tessler in
1988 and Weiss in 1989. This
award is given to members
who show outstanding support
and give much time to USY.
The list of awards the three
have won is impressive.
Blackman has won debate
team awards, including a first
for public speaking. He has
also won the Presidential
Competitive Scholarship.
Tessler placed first in the Na-
tional French Competition
Test and the Presidential
Competitive Scholarship.
Weiss has been named to
the Observer and Eccentric
and Free Press academic all-
state team with an honorable
mention in the USA Today
academic all-state team. He
has received the Robert C.
Byrd honors scholarship for
merit given by the state of
Michigan and a National
Merit Scholarship. In addi-
tion, he has received many
creative writing awards, and
the Presidential Competitive
Scholarship.

Recently, all three were
named "super achievers" by
The Jewish News.

In the fall, when all three
attend the University of
Michigan, another common
thread will present itself. All
three will join siblings at U-M.
Blackman will be joining
brother Jeff; Tessler will join-
sister Ruth and Weiss will join
brother Jeff. While in Ann
Arbor, Blackman plans to
study engineering. Tessler
plans to study medicine and
Weiss will be in a program to
jointly study English and
engineering.
"They are liked and
respected for their God-given
talents," is how Rabbi A. Irv-
ing Schnipper of Beth
Abraham Hillel Moses
described these young men.
They regularly attend Shab-
bat services there, where they
sit in their own corner and
they are known as "The Three
Musketeers".
They are "helpful" and will
participate whenever they are
asked to do so, the rabbi said,
adding he wished that he
could have more young
members like them in his con-
gregation. Their competence
and leadership are ap-
preciated and admired.

Asked what kind of legacy
they want to leave USY, their
school and synaggue, Weiss
replied for all three: "an exam-
ple that people can make a dif-
ference and be involved if they
want to." ❑
