Noah Bulleri awarded the Rensselaer Medalist by his counselor Ms. Ross.

Junior Noah Bulleri was awarded the Rensselaer Medal which includes a merit scholarship for $30,000 for each year of college at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, should Bulleri attend. Bulleri was nominated for this award due to his excelling in mathematics and science throughout his career at Lakeland Regional High School. 


What is the Rensselaer Medal?

The Rensselaer Medal has been awarded for more than 100 years, according to the school’s website. The purpose of the award is to both recognize students who have shown prodigious work in math and science and encourage them to enter careers in the STEM field. 

Bulleri told the Lancer Ledger, “I feel honored to be selected for the highly selective Rensselaer Medalist award… I think this award really got me thinking about going to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute for college.” 


 How can students get this award?

For students to get awarded the merit scholarship to Rensselaer, they have to meet a lot of standards throughout their high school career. To be honored for this award, school counselor Ms. Tara Ross, who nominated Bulleri, told the Ledger, students must “be ranked within the top 10% of their class, be a high school junior, excel in advanced math and science courses, have completed chemistry, biology, lab-based physics, and at least four years of math, including precalculus by the end of high school, demonstrate potential for success in a challenging academic setting, and exhibit significant involvement in extracurricular activities.” 


Why was Noah a fit for this award?

Bulleri was a fit candidate for this award because he truly met all of the criteria. According to Ms. Ross, “Noah truly excels in math and science, and so this is one of the reasons why he was selected. He also is scheduled to take Physics 2 Honors next year, which is one of the reasons he was selected.” Bulleri has always been a hardworking student and put his best foot forward when it comes to school and his academics. 

Bulleri told the Lancer Ledger what got him to this point. “I have been motivated by myself and my goals to get into a college that I can succeed in and become a part of the quickly growing computer science field of work.” 


On behalf of the LRHS community, we are all beyond proud of Bulleri and his accomplishments and we can’t wait to see what the future holds.
