Listing of Honors and Activities
- Fitchburg State College President's Scholarship., May 1991
This scholarship was awarded to those students entering the college with a
combined SAT score of 1200 or over (mine was 1240) and a set grade point average (which I met)
and was dependant on a 3.2 cumaltive average while in attendance.
- Auburn High School Faculty Scholarship., May 1991
This scholarship was awarded by the faculty of Auburn High School by a panel of
teachers based on academic perfomance and overall contribution to the school.
Participants in the Honor Society and school government were excluded, and only
three people were recipients of this scholarship.
- Program printed in the American Computer Science League newsletter, one of only 5 programs in the nation that provided the correct output for the data given., April 1991
The ACSL (American Computer Sciene League) is a group of high school students
from around the country that four times a year take a 5 question test a write
a small program to solve a problem. The program runs a set of data that is not
seen by the students (ever) and is run by the teacher in charge of the computer
science program at each school with the test data and is awarded anywhere from
zero to 5 points based on the outputs received. In this case, the program was
related to geometry. The programs that could complete the information and were
the most clearly documented/written were eligable for submission into the
quaterly newsletter of the organization. In this case, only 5 people were able
to produce the correct outputs, and only 4 submissions were made. I wish I
could go into greater depth about the program's operation, but i have not been
able to relocate it recently.
- Auburn High School Computer Team Member, New England Regional Champions 1991., September 1988 to May 1991
I was a member of the ACSL (American Computer Sciene League) for the last three
years of my education at Auburn High School. This entailed taking 4 tests a
year in various levels of computer science. Questions ranged from Lisp to
base conversions to algorithm analysis. My senior year, I was one point shy
of a perfect score, and was tied with three individuals for second place in
points in the northeast.
- First place in the Auburn High School Science Fair, "Computer Simulation of a One Room Fire.", April 1990
This was a computer division of my high school's science fair in which I placed.
The program I wrote calculated the heat of various parts of a room during a
fire set in objects of different materials. I based my program on an original
one written in BASIC and rewrote all of the code Pascal in order to provide
a marked increase in speed and an overall ease in user interface with the
program. This was done in part with a professor from WPI whom was head of the
Fire Studies program at that school.
- Auburn School System - Perfect Attendance., September 1983 to May 1991
This should be pretty self-explanatory. The only blemish in attendance for the
above years mentioned is a tardy date in the year 1988.
