Congratulations to Namank Shah and Mrs. Saxe for G.E. Star Awards!

Burlington High School is pleased to announce that BHS Senior, Namank Shah, and Mrs. Jean Saxe, a BHS Math Teacher, have each been designated as recipients of the 2010 GE STAR Award.

The GE STAR Awards competition is open to children of eligible GE employees and retirees.  Students, chosen through a selective application process, are awarded a one-time scholarship to be used to defray higher education expenses.  Winners also select a teacher from their current secondary school to recognize and to guide the use of a $500 award for the school.

Recipients are determined in a highly selective global competition independently managed by the Institute of International Education (IIE), an international non-profit educational exchange organization.

Congratulations and best wishes to Namank Shah and Mrs. Jean Saxe on this outstanding achievement!
