Congratulations to ND sophomore Grace Yacobe, who was named September Casey’s Public House Student of the Month! An honor student, Grace is a student ambassador, the President of the Play It Forward Club, and a STEM Scholar.
After winning 1st place in the tri-state biology competition, Grace was one of 13 students to present their research at the PA Junior Academy of Sciences state meet at Penn State, where she achieved a perfect score and was awarded a Director’s Award for Biology. She also entered the Delaware Valley Science Fair, which included over 700 projects by middle and high school students representing 10 regions from across the state, and was awarded a bronze medal as the 3rd place overall winner for 9th grade students. This earned her an all-expense-paid trip to the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) in Atlanta, GA, with students from over 80 countries. Her research project examined the creation of a non-invasive method to efficiently detect lung conditions, one of the world’s leading causes of death. Read more about Grace here!
