This year, we had almost 1,400 students representing 39 high schools throughout Los Angeles County take the Local ACS Exam in March. The top overall school was Whitney High School. The top first year schools were Arcadia and North Hollywood. From these students, 17 students representing 12 high schools were selected to take the National ACS Chemistry Exam on April 16th for a chance to be one of the 20 students nationwide who will be attending the Chemistry Camp in June. These students, as well as the top performers and teachers from each school of 10 or more participants, will be honored at our annual Educational Awards Banquet, along with the Outstanding High School Teacher of the Year, Dean Papadakis. Please see Page 4 for a biography of Dean Papadakis.
