Archmere Seniors Named National Merit Finalists
Archmere Students Earn Awards at New Castle Science Fair
Four Archmere seniors: Zixin Cao, Mercedes Chartier, Jonathon Lobo, Brian Zhang and Justine Zhang, were named National Merit Finalists because of their high scores on the PSATs, taken in their junior year. Only 8,000 students nation-wide are named finalists and are eligible for Merit Scholarship awards.
Sixteen students from Archmere presented research experiments at the New Castle County Science Fair at Del Tech. Five students earned awards during the science fair. Jessica Zbranak '16 and Joseph Spall '16 earned awards that were sponsored by outside organizations. Joe has been invited to present his research to the BioGenius competition for Biotechnology. Three students earned top three finishes in various research categories. Hannah Palczuk '16, Tori Falasco '16 and Laurel Dentinger '16 have each finished in the top three in their research category. These three students will present at the Delaware Valley Science Fair which combines Delaware with Pennsylvania and New Jersey in early April.
