Indyasia J, a recent graduate of James N. Gamble Montessori High School, was named a 2012 Gates Millennium Scholar by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the United Negro College Fund. She is among 1,000 recipients of this year's award and plans to attend Lee University in Cleveland, Tenn.
Indyasia was singled out not only because of her outstanding grades — having earned straight A's throughout high school — but also for her contribution to the community of learners at Gamble and her church family. Many of her teachers regard her sense of community and academic engagement as the best they have ever encountered, and she has enriched the lives of many students and staff.
Congratulations to Indyasia.
