Nine Roslyn High School students of the Class of 2013 have advanced to become finalists after having been named semifinalists in the National Merit Scholarship Program last September.
The students are Matthew Borin, Julia Cohen, Matthew Forrest, Arvind Kumar, Joshua Landman, Andre LeBrun, Peter Pak, Benjamin Reisner, and Alec Urbach. These students are among 15,000 nationwide to be named finalists, representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors.
There will be a meeting of the Roslyn Public Schools Board of Education on Thursday, March 7 at 8 p.m. in Roslyn High School. The starting time of 8 p.m. will stay in effect for future Board of Education meetings. Agendas and minutes for Board of Education meetings are available at www.roslynschools.org; click on “Board of Education.”
Three Roslyn High School students were selected as candidates for the United States Presidential Scholars Program. Jared B. Benatar, Arvind Kumar, and Alain Sherman will be eligible for selection as one of the 560 semifinalists, and ultimately as a Scholar as they continue to compete in the program.
According to the White House Commission on Presidential Scholars, the program was established in 1964 by Executive Order of the President to recognize some of the nation’s most distinguished graduating seniors for their accomplishments.
A total of seventy-four teams participated in the Western Long Island Science Olympiad Regional Competition on February 2 at Kellenberg Memorial High School. The Roslyn team completed twenty-two events, which included Anatomy and Physiology, Chemistry Lab, Fermi Questions, and Maglev.
