The Stella K. Abraham High School for Girls is proud to announce that Adina Singer, a member of the Class of 2015, has been named a Semi-Finalist in the National Merit Scholarship Competition. A leader in the school, Adina spent this past summer involved in research at the Garcia Center at Stony Brook University, studying a method of cutting DNA to simplify the sequencing process. She was associate editor of The Looking Glass, the SKA newspaper, is captain of the SKA College Bowl team, and is a member of the Debate team and Science Olympiad. She also organized a fundraising Walk-a-Thon for the Alzheimer’s Association in memory of her grandfather, z’l.

The National Merit Scholarship Program is a national academic scholarship competition for recognition and college scholarships administered by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation, a privately funded nonprofit organization. Each year, approximately 10,500 scholarships, representing less than 1% of the initial pool of entrants, are awarded through NMSC programs.

Mazal tov, Adina! May you continue to grow mei’chayil l’chayil. Your teachers and classmates applaud your prestigious accomplishment.
