SUNY Broome honors top-scoring math and science students with Frank G Paul Medal of Excellence

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - SUNY Broome is honoring local high school students who are at the top of their class in math and science.

The Broome Community College Foundation presented 28 students from 14 area high schools with the Frank G Paul Medal of Excellence.

The award is given to the top-scoring male and female student in math and science from each school.

It's named for the late Frank Paul who spent over 40 years as an engineer at IBM.

Whitney Point Senior Kelly Perry was honored Tuesday.

She says hard work really does pay off.

"I'm very proud to be here with my mom and my grandma.  It's a great feeling to be recognized for all of my hard work throughout high school," said Perry.

Perry says she plans to attend college to pursue a career as a nurse, specializing in mothers and babies.

President Kevin Drumm also awarded a male and female student with a $1,000 scholarship if they plan to attend SUNY Broome.
