Central High junior Nick Vazquez has been selected to attend the Summer Academy for Math and Science at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This academy is a six week residential program designed to mirror the first semester of a freshman college campus experience. As an attendee, Nick will study math and science courses while working on a capstone final project that will be presented to a panel of professors and members of the business community. Nick’s acceptance into the academy and full program scholarship was based on his completion of several different essays in which he explained how he includes STEM studies in his schedule and how her perseveres with a STEM-minded attitude and focus in his daily life. Congratulations, Nick!
