Baltimore High School Senior Kathy Le Receives Cooke College Scholarship

Cooke Scholar Kathy Le from Baltimore Polytechnic Institute

Earlier this week, members of the Cooke Foundation staff had the pleasure of notifying another College Scholarship Program recipient in person. Kathy Le is a senior at Baltimore Polytechnic Institute (Poly) whose research on genetic mutation led her to be named a semifinalist in the 2016 Intel Science Talent Search.

Her research work was a part of Poly’s Ingenuity Project, a 2015 recipient of the Cooke Foundation’s Selective High School Grant. In the video below, Kathy shares her ambitions to continue to think big, work hard, and achieve as a Cooke Scholar.

“I want to continue what I’ve learned and what I’ve done in high school, and this award I’ve gotten has given me the motivation to keep going and also reassured me that people appreciate what I do and also recognize that I try really hard.”
