Kurt Schleunes, Math Department Chair, presented plaques to Penny Ni and Seyoon Lee, two students in the Advanced Math/Science Research class who were selected as INTEL Science Talent Competition finalists. INTEL is the most prestigious pre-college science competition in the nation, and just 300 semifinalists were selected from over 1800 applications, representing 497 high schools in 44 states. Only six semifinalists were selected from New England boarding schools: 2 from Andover, 1 from Choate, 1 from Hotchkiss and 2 from Berkshire School. It is the third year in a row that Berkshire has had students selected as INTEL semifinalists.
