One local student is celebrating after receiving some exciting college news.
Seth Nguyen is a senior at Harrison Central High School and is involved in numerous organizations like Beta Club, National Honor Society, and Mu Alpha Theta.
In recognition of his academic excellence, Seth recently received a full-ride scholarship to Stanford University worth over $300,000 through the QuestBridge National College Match Program for high-achieving, low-income students.
Stanford was Seth’s top ranked college on his match list of schools and he recalled the moment he received the big news. “So, I opened my letter and I immediately, like, screamed. I was like ‘mom, mom, I got in.’ And I ran downstairs and my mom starting crying and my brother. Yeah, it was kind of crazy.”
Seth plans to study biomedical engineering while in college.
