All students have done a great job this year, further developing their leadership and creative skills, and demonstrating they are great mathematicians, communicators, principled and knowledgeable students. Happy Pi day!
The SSIS community is honestly the ideal mixture of acceptance, encouragement and quirk. If I were to have learned anything at SSIS, it would be to simply not be ordinary. The ordinary doesn't make hearts skip or put smiles on faces. The ordinary doesn't inspire the minds of people around them. The ordinary doesn't evoke progress in a world that desperately needs it.
