TROY, N.Y. – Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute has announced the winners of the Rensselaer Medal. Christopher Rogers of Fayette is this year’s honoree at Gould Academy in Bethel.

The Rensselaer Medal, the oldest prize of its kind in the United States, is awarded by more than 2,000 secondary schools throughout North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia. The award is given to students who have distinguished themselves in mathematics and science.

To be honored with the Rensselaer Medal, a student must be a member of the junior class and the high school’s single most promising science and math student.

Each medalist who is accepted and subsequently enrolls at Rensselaer receives a scholarship of $60,000 payable in four yearly awards of $15,000 each.

Rogers is the son of Dr. William and Karen Rogers.
