NY Teen Achieves Ultimate Academic Feat

CBS News, April 5, 2016

For the second time in as many years, a senior from one Long Island high school has achieved the ultimate academic feat, reports CBS New York.

Augusta Uwamanzu-Nna, valedictorian at Elmont Memorial High School, has been accepted to all eight Ivy League universities.

Uwamanzu-Nna scored a nearly 102-point grade point average. She got extra credit for additional work and was an Intel Science finalist.

Last year, Elmont’s Harold Ekeh chose Yale from among the 13 universities where he was accepted.

Although still a rarity, acceptance at every Ivy League school appears to be a growing phenomenon.

Fernando Rojas of Fullerton, California, also was accepted to all eight Ivy schools in 2015.
