Grade 7 Student Selected as Broadcom MASTERS Semifinalist
Grade 7 student Srimayi Mulukutla was selected as one of the Society for Science & the Public and Broadcom Foundation’s 2017 Top 300 competitors in the seventh annual Broadcom MASTERS for her project, “Antibacterial Effects of Copper Surfaces.”
The Academy opened its doors on the cusp of the Great Depression and the school was not immune to the national financial crisis. In 1933, Alexander C. Tener, Chairman of the Board of Trustees for Sewickley Academy at that time, wrote to all of the trustees asking each to underwrite $300 of the operating deficit for that year, so they could close the books and keep the school open.
