On Saturday Dec 9, 2017, three of Milton High School's best and brightest female students traveled to Bedford, MA to enter into "the Women in Science Competition". Juniors Sarah Hancock, Karisa Lasoff, and Claire Mandel competed against 44 other teams from 23 different school districts.
This was Milton's second appearance at the competition, and the ladies had a strong showing in the competition. The competition required a vast science knowledge in multiple fields like biology, genetics, physics, chemistry, astronomy, weather, coding and problem solving as there were two design build problems presented to the students. Milton High hopes to send more teams in the years to come to this fantastic competition.
Congratulations to MHS Business Teacher, Yvonne Nequist and her three students (Sam Lelacheur, Gwen LeLacheur and Anthony Martin) as they traveled to downtown Boston on 12/7/17 for the State Street Boston Junior Achiever (JA) Stock Market Challenge. The students started off with $500,000 and ended up accumulating more than $1M. Not only the earnings, this magnificent trio took first place in the competition and each were given their very own computer!
Congratulations to Ms. Nequist and our three winning students: Sam Lelacheur, Gwen LeLacheur and Anthony Martin for a job well done!
