Merrill Presidential Scholars Named

Three Clark School undergraduate students and their mentors have been recognized by the Philip Merrill Presidential Scholars Program. The honorees are:

  • Lauren McKay (aerospace engineering) and her mentors, Clark School Professor Christopher Cadou and her world history and AP European history teacher at Patuxent High School, Stan Hampton.
  • Nicholas Wagman (aerospace engineering) and his mentors, Clark School Associate Dean William Fourney and his English teacher at Winters Mill High School, John Holt.
  • YiAn (Ann) Sun (chemical engineering and mathematics) and her mentors, Clark School Professor Chunsheng Wang and her mathematics teacher at Montgomery Blair High School, Eric Walstein.

The Philip Merrill Presidential Scholars Program honors the most successful rising seniors from each of the university's schools and colleges, as well as their mentors from both the university faculty and their precollege education. The scholars' mentors participate in a workshop designed to strengthen relationships between the university and K-12 schools. To continue the legacy of academic excellence and mentoring, scholarships are awarded in the precollege teachers' names to new first year UMD students from their respective high schools or school districts.
