Tuesday, January 24, 2006
Ms. Mary Ann Spicijaric '84, The Prep's Science Department Chairperson and leader of the school's Science Research Program, has guided Prep seniors Sylvia Eileen Boddy and Michelle Alana Iocolano into the semi-final round of the prestigious Intel Science Talent Search. This marks the eighth consecutive year in which Prep seniors have been named Intel semi-finalists.
For this year's competition, St. Francis Prep is one of only four Catholic High Schools nationwide to have an Intel semi-finalist, and it is the only Catholic High School in the country to have more than one semi-finalist.
In addition, the Prep is the only Catholic High School in NewYork City/Long Island with a semi-finalist.
Congratulations again to the Prep's Science Research Team and good luck to Sylvia and Michelle!
