Though huge protests in major cities around the world have grabbed most of the headlines, demonstrations in support of Black Lives Matter and against racism have come to Main Streets nationwide. On June 6, some recent George School graduates brought the movement to the streets of Newtown.
More than 115 George School students sat for the American Mathematics Competition (AMC) on Thursday, January 30, 2020. Eight students – William Carson ’20, Forest Ho-Chen ’22, Pasit Jindanuwat ’20, Jason Liu ’22, Justin Liu ’21, Thana Somsirivattana ’20, Tommy Wang ’21, and Ellen Zhang ’22 – advanced to the American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME).
Abby Eisold ’20 took first place, Neha Kotha ’22 took sixth, and Susanne Kowalska ’21 took eighth at the Purple Championship HS Invitational Indoor Pentathlon. The three varsity girls’ winter track members participated in 55-meter hurdles, long jump, shot put, high jump, and 800-meter run events.
