High school senior Luigia Than has been named a recipient of a corporate-sponsored scholarship in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program.
She is one of only five Suffolk County and 32 throughout the state of the 1,000 high school seniors nationwide who received the honor.

Luigia is the recipient of the National Merit Battelle Scholarship. A global research and development organization, Battelle company officials “believe that a quality education prepares individuals to contribute effectively to their communities and workplaces.”

Luigia, an accomplished, academically talented and well-rounded student, will enter Stony Brook University in September with an eye on a career in the engineering field.
