“You have all grown as scientists, engineers, computer scientists, mathematicians and as individuals,” said science teacher Mary Kroll. “To those who will continue in the research program and STEM Academy, we look forward to continuing to guide you as research students. We congratulate our seniors for their accomplishments as pre-college research students.”
