Tilghman Students Earn Top Honors at AIMS Program; Will Travel to Atlanta as Members of AIMS Directors’ Club
Approximately 125 regional high school students participated in the AIMS program. The eight week program is divided into two four-week components. The first four weeks are off-site, and consist of pre-summer assignments and research. The last four weeks are held on campus at Murray State. There, students participate in research teams led by professors and graduate students, take part in classes during the day, and enjoy nightly activities.
Cunningham was honored for outstanding merit in Advanced Math. Flemons was recognized for her excellence in Arts and Crafts. Mayes received his distinction in PE and Sports, and De’Lacia Reed was awarded top honors in African Cooking. Reed and fellow Tilghman student La’Stasia Chamberlain were honored for outstanding merit in Book Reports.
Williams was named the Adventures in Math and Science Outstanding Female Participant.
Cunningham, Flemons, Mayes, Reed, Chamberlain, and Williams will travel to Atlanta, GA, later this month for an all-expenses paid 4-day tour of area universities, museums, and businesses.
