Three juniors from East Meadow and W.T. Clarke High Schools garnered an Award of Excellence from the National Academy of Future Scientists and Technologists after attending the 2017 Congress of Future Science and Technology Leaders, held in Boston, Massachusetts, in June.

According to its website, the academy is “dedicated to inspiring and supporting all K-12 and college students who wish to devote their lives to the sciences and technology.” 

East Meadow High School juniors Sophia Yu and Ameer Menwer and W. T. Clarke High School junior Kyaw Ya received this honor as a result of teacher nominations, leadership ability, academic achievement, and dedication to science and technology.

The three-day conference gave students an opportunity to learn from award-winning inventors, scientists and technology entrepreneurs.  Students were also allowed opportunities to network with fellow attendees in order to gain a better understanding of the various science and technology fields. 

The district congratules Sophia, Ameer and Kyaw on this remarkable experience and wishes them continued success during their junior year.
