Math Scholars Named
The Institute of Create Problem Solving for Gifted and Talented Students at SUNY College at Old Westbury has named two middle school students as Long Island Young Scholars of Mathematics.

Teppei Fukuto and William Wu were among 86 students selected for the honor out of a field of 600 top ranking students nominated from school districts across Long Island.  

As part of the honor, the students will participate in 60 hours of classes at SUNY Old Westbury, ranging in mathematical topics from algebra, geometry, discrete math and number theory.

The pair were recognized for their accomplishment with certificates from the Port Jefferson Board of Education during their regular meeting on Jan. 10.

“We are enormously proud of these two young men,” said Dr. Robert Neidig, middle school principal.
