Senior Anthony Androulakas Named "Top 300 Scholar" Nationwide

 

Anthony Androulakis Congratulations to senior Anthony Androulakis!

 

The Society for Science & the Public selected Anthony as a top 300 scholar in the 78th Regeneron Science Talent Search, the nation’s oldest and most prestigious science and mathematics competition for high school seniors. Nearly 2,000 students nationwide entered the competition this year and only one other student in South Carolina was selected to receive this honor.  Anthony investigated the topic, "Identifying the Neuroanatomical Correlates of Melodic Repetition Using a Novel Computerized Assessment in Stroke Patients."  He will receive $2,000 and Dreher will receive the same amount to use toward STEM-related activities.

 

Alumni of the Science Talent Search have made extraordinary contributions to science and hold more than 100 of the world’s most distinguished science and math honors, including the Nobel Prize and the National Medal of Science. From that select pool of 300 scholars, 40 student finalists will be invited to Washington, D.C. in March to participate in final judging, display their work to the public, meet with notable scientists, and compete for awards, including the top award of $250,000.

 

Anthony is the son of George and Xiao Androulakis.
