Michael Antonelli, Rosete-Garcia’s Chemistry teacher, recommended her for the award. “Jenifer is an exceptional student that has excelled in all of her math and science courses,” said Antonelli. “She has challenged herself academically by taking a number of upper level science courses and has done extremely well in all of them.”

Additionally, if she chooses to apply to the University of Rochester, her application fee will be waived and she will be eligible to be considered for merit scholarships worth at least $10,000 per year. Every year, participating high schools each nominate one student for the award.
