The competition for this year’s award was tough but Mishra stood out, with an almost perfect GPA, extensive community involvement and impressive contributions in the field of medical research. She also participates in the High School Track Team, Marching Band and Tutoring Program. She has somehow also discovered an eighth day of the week to fit all those accomplishments in.

We wish her luck in all her future endeavors and also to next year’s competitors for the award. Go to the Scholarship application link for requirement information and program details.
