Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, N.Y., has announced the winners of the Rensselaer Medal. Felicia Nicole Stewart of Auburn is the honoree at St. Dominic Regional High School.

The Rensselaer Medal is awarded by more than 3,900 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 medal, a student must be a member of the junior class and the high school’s single most promising science and mathematics student. Each medalist who is accepted and subsequently enrolls at Rensselaer will receive a scholarship of $60,000 payable in four yearly awards of $15,000 each.

Stewart is the daughter of Michelle and Jim Emerson of Auburn and Clifford and Melinda Stewart of Mexico.
