Haynes Academy Student Honored With Siemens Award For Advanced Placement

A Haynes Academy student has been named as one of two state winners of the 2010 Siemens Awards for Advanced Placement.

Jordana Williams, a senior at Haynes Academy, earned the Siemens Award which is a signature program of the Siemens Foundation administered by the College Board.  Williams is one of only 100 top achievers in Advanced Placement program science and mathematics courses and won a $2,000 college scholarship.  The Siemens Foundation was created to encourage students to pursue academic careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

Williams, whose favorite AP classes are calculus and biology, would like to do scientific research in biology, mathematics, engineering, or chemistry in college.

Williams is a 2010 National Merit Finalist, two-time individual national Academic Games champion (2008-09), and was a two-time member of the U.S. World Youth Chess Championship Team (2003, 2005).
