At the end of May and earlier this month, two Johns Hopkins Book Awards were given to two high school juniors who exhibit the qualities and characteristics of the Johns Hopkins ethic.
On Tuesday, May 27, Gary Weart (Master of Science, Education 1974) presented Sloan Neitert, a junior at Academic Magnet High School in North Charleston, with the Johns Hopkins Book Award. Sloan has expressed an interest in Bioengineering.
On Monday, June 2, Eric Brown (BS, Mechanical Engineering, 1988; MS, Management, 1993, Parent 2007 and 2013) presented the Book Award to Grace Whitbeck, a junior at Wando High School – where both of his own daughters (Erica, Eng ‘07 and Inga, A&S ‘13) attended high school before coming to Hopkins. Grace has expressed an interest in Psychology.
The Johns Hopkins Book Award is a prestigious award offered yearly to an exceptional junior at each of the participating secondary schools.
The award celebrates the spirit of Johns Hopkins University, whose alumni populate the upper echelons of many disciplines, including literature, the arts, medicine, the sciences, international affairs, the social sciences, and engineering.
The Johns Hopkins Book Award Program is administered on behalf of the Johns Hopkins Alumni Association by its local chapters.
While the Johns Hopkins Alumni Association considers this award to be an honor, receipt of it should in no way be construed by its recipient as any indication of likelihood of admission to Johns Hopkins University should he or she choose to apply.
