The award citation at the Awards Ceremony reads:
The Student of the Year award represents more than just academic excellence. The Student of the Year is also a well-rounded individual who performs community service, has interests and hobbies outside of science, and is someone who shows leadership to their peers. This year’s winner embodies all of this and more.
Our Student of the Year has a passion for science and a strong sense of their community and the future. This year’s student has been actively involved with science fair for 7 years and has started a program in her community because of this experience. The program has inspired over 100 students to question the world around them through the practices of the scientific method.
Please join me in applauding our 2015 Student of the Year, from Monache High School in Porterville, Tulare County, Madison Meredith.
