St. Gregory senior Amanda Liu has won a national college scholarship for her academic achievements.
Amanda was named the winner of the Siemens Award for Advanced Placement, which consists of a $2,000 scholarship and recognition in USA Today.
Amanda, a National Merit Scholarship semifinalist who has a grade point average of 4.4, will attend Brown University, where she has been accepted into the Program in Liberal Medical Education. The eight-year continuum combines liberal arts and professional education, culminating in a medical degree.
Scott Morris, head of the science department at St. Gregory, 3231 N. Craycroft Road, said Amanda has made him a better teacher.
