Elizabeth Warren weeps.
Stephen Le Breton is recognized for his work on bone regeneration. I’m only half-kidding about his ancestry because, while Greenwich High School produces an astonishing number of Intel finalists, it seems that most (many?) are of Indian descent. We’re proud of all of them all, of course, but the Indians count on our “minority” performance scores, so naturally we treasure them more than the others.
But still, Stephen, outstanding job.
UPDATE: Turns out, GHS has two finalists, including Annie Zhang. Greenwich Time now profiles them both, as well as the GHS Honors Science teacher who’s been helping turn out so many geniuses these past years, Andy Bramante. Let’s triple Mr. Bramante’s pay and hire more like him while clearing out the deadwood? Just a thought, and I supposes impractical; why waste his kind of talent monitoring a classroom of video-playing illiterate, privileged dolts? Deadwood’s perfect for that job.
UPDATE Two: Lest you think that I was part of the Stephen Le Breton/Annie Zhang cohort, let me admit: although we didn’t have video games back in my day, I was exactly the kind of lazy, uninterested student I describe above and Mr. Bramante’s skill and enthusiasm would have been entirely wasted on me. Fortunately for me, I was literate and an idiot savant when it came to multiple choice tests, so I took those tiny skills and made a go of things. Digging ditches after high school in Arkansas for two bucks an hour also helped with the lazy privileged part.
