Local high schooler earns prestigious honor


MADISON (WKOW) -- Amy Hua, a senior at West High School in Madison, was named one of the Wisconsin state winners of the 2012-13 Siemens Awards for Advanced Placement. The award, and a $2000 scholarship, is given to the top male and female performers in science and math Advance Placement (AP) courses in each state.

Out of all the high school students in the country, only 101 were honored with the Siemens award and scholarship. Amy outperformed all other female AP students in Wisconsin to receive this award. The Siemens Foundation provides more than $7 million annually in support of educational initiatives in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in the United States. The foundation's goal is to support students and nurture tomorrow's scientist and engineers.
