Mathematics Sterling Scholar

My sister Samantha was awarded Sterling Scholar for Mathematics for Granger High School this year. This is one of the very highest awards that can be given by a high school in Utah. Sterling Scholar in mathematics is especially impressive.

For those who are unfamiliar with the Sterling Scholar award, each year one student from each high school in Utah is awarded the Sterling Scholar award for each subject. These students then go on to compete for the state Sterling Scholar award, which is given to one student in each category for the entire state.

Samantha’s picture was published in a special insert in the Deseret News in recognition of the award. Here’s the insert for the mathematics section. She’s in the center of the second row.

This is not the only impressive award in mathematics that she has received this year and she has also received awards in areas other than mathematics. I’m proud to have her as a sister.
