MST Sr. Sunny Wang Honored Twice!

Congratulations are in order for MST Sr. Sunny Wang. He was recently named as a finalist in the 80th Regeneron Science Talent Search AND as a National Merit Scholar Finalist! Wow!

For his efforts in the Science Talent Search, Sunny earned a $2,000 award, as well as an additional $2,000 to be put back into STEM education and project study here at CHS. As for being named a National Merit Finalist, what does that entail? Sunny likely scored in the top 1% of all juniors in our state who took the PSAT last year then was selected from a nationwide pool of some 16,000 Semifinalists to become a Finalist. Double wow!

From the Regeneron Science Talent Search Press Release: “On behalf of Society for Science and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc., we are pleased to notify you that Sunny Wang has been named one of the top 300 young scientists of the 80th Regeneron Science Talent Search. Your school is one of 185 across the U.S. from which one or more Regeneron STS Scholars were named this year. This is a proud reflection on your school and its educators who support dedicated young researchers, particularly in an era that has presented so many challenges.”

Let’s go!
