On March 17, three of Whitehall High School’s top chemistry students participated in the local Chemistry Olympiad Competition at Muhlenberg College. Alexander Eddinger, Samantha Ganser and Caterine Yunez-Cosme all participated in the event, which consisted of a paper exam.
Alexander scored high enough on the exam to be invited to take part in the national exam, which will be held at Muhlenberg College April 21. He will represent the Lehigh Valley section of the American Chemical Society in the 2018 U.S. National Chemistry Olympiad.
Congratulations to Jacky Mansour for receiving the Youth Volunteer Scholarship for her volunteerism with Whitehall High School’s SERVE Club.

Each recipient was nominated by Lehigh Valley nonprofit representatives who thought the volunteer’s service was above and beyond, and the judging panels thoughtfully reviewed each submission.
