Matthew Zheng, Cindy Chen and Peter Luo took honorable mention in the top 40. Many of you will remember Calvin Deng, Jason Liang and Tejas Sundaresan. All have been accepted to MIT. Tejas is still deciding between MIT and Princeton. Jason is considering multiple colleges. Calvin won the contest and has been offered a full scholarship to Duke. He has a choice of a full-ride to Duke, a partial ride to Harvard and a no-funding option at MIT (they never give out scholarships). Please remember that these students got their foundations here at Enloe, not just in math and science, but in English, social studies, and second languages. I cannot imagine any of them being accepted to such wonderful universities without writing exceptional essays with their applications. I know they are very appreciative of the two years they had at Enloe!
