On Sep 1 2009 Melissa Bedell of SC of Novi reached the summit of Figure Skating's test structure. Passing the Senior Freeskating test and the 15 tests that must precede it is a tremendously difficult task that requires years and years of dedicated work, and a great deal of skill. Only a small percentage of skaters can claim this great prize, and very few among the general public can claim any other accomplishment of comparable effort. Melissa's accomplishment is especially noteworthy because she choreographed her own Senior FS Test program.
To every skater that successfully meets this challenge, and especially to Melissa on this special day, Congratulations !!!
