Red Mountain Seniors Finalists for Presidential Scholar Award
A HUGE congratulations to two of our very own Red Mountain High School Biotech seniors, Geethika Ameneni and Adrian Kwiakowski, who are finalists for the Presidential Scholar Award! Finalists are judged on their academics, biotech participation, and internships. The prestigious award is given to only 20 students from across the U.S. and has only been given to 7,500 students since it was started by President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964. The two will find out in the next few weeks if they will receive the honor. To read their interviews, check out the rest of the AZFamily article here! Congratulations again, Geethika and Adrian!
