Town honors local Regeneron finalist and semifinalists at virtual ceremony

The Town of North Hempstead continued its tradition of honoring semifinalists and finalists from the Regeneron Science Talent Search, during a ceremony before the regular Town Board meeting at Town Hall on March 10. The Regeneron STS is the nation’s most prestigious science research competition for high school seniors and requires students to present original research to nationally recognized scientists.

Town Supervisor Jennifer DeSena and the Town Board honored 17 semifinalists and 1 finalist from six North Hempstead schools. Honorees came from Great Neck South High School, Great Neck North High School, Herricks High School, Manhasset High School, Roslyn High School, and Paul D. Schreiber High School.
