Quote from teacher: "Jennifer Deng is a tremendously talented young woman with an incredibly bright future," said Andy Roth, AP Chemistry teacher. "As an award winning debater, co-editor in chief of the school newspaper, accomplished violinist, and volunteer, Miss Deng displays the hard work and leadership skills that will ensure her continued success. I have been fortunate to work with Jennifer over the past four years in class, in extracurricular activities, and now as a volunteer lab aid. One of the best things about working with Miss Deng is no matter what the task or the obstacle, she maintains a positive attitude."
