Congratulations to 2014 High School Award Winner, Jared Duker Lichtman, who will be a Churchill Scholar at the University of Cambridge this year. See a note from Jared below, sent September 2018:
“I would like to thank you again for selecting me in 2014 for the DC PBK [High School] Merit Award. I recently graduated from Dartmouth College, summa cum laude, majoring in mathematics, with a minor in physics, and was 1 of 22 members of the Class of 2018 to be inducted early into Phi Beta Kappa. Your honor was quite prescient! This upcoming year, I will be in Cambridge, UK, as 1 of 16 Churchill scholars selected nationwide, studying for a master’s in pure mathematics. Thank you again for giving me a vote of confidence 4 years ago, and I hope the award continues to support many worthy students to come!”
