STEM Premier Top 100 rankings feature four District Five students

IRMO- STEM Premier has released their Top 100 rankings for 2017 and four students from Lexington-Richland School District Five have made the list. The students are: Sydney Bertram (Spring Hill High School), Jordan Crooks (Dutch Fork High School), Anna Lee (Dutch Fork High School) and Hannah Stewart (Chapin High School).

“This is a remarkable achievement for these four students to be recognized nationally,” said Reggie Dean, District Five’s Director of Secondary Education. “To have four individuals make this rankings list is a true testament to how dedicated they are in the classroom and ultimately what we strive for with all of our students in District Five. We congratulate these students on this significant accomplishment!”

STEM Premier is the first online solution that assists students in designing a career pathway, educators in recruiting top talent to their schools, and employers in developing a stable, continuous talent pipeline. Once a year, the website identifies the top academic and technical high school students on STEM Premier and recognizes their accomplishments, talents and efforts.

This year, over 200,000 STEM Premier students from over 16,000 different high schools competed for a spot in the STEM Premier Top 100, making this accomplishment a testament to the selected students’ academic, technical and extracurricular endeavors. Making the STEM Premier Top 100 is not easy – over 30 different aspects of these students’ accomplishments and experiences are taken into account and compared against tens of thousands of other high school students on STEM Premier.
