2017 Merrill scholars honor their teachers and mentors

Kevin Kowalewski ’17 was home-schooled for his entire K-12 education before coming to Cornell. This week, as a graduating senior and a Merrill Presidential Scholar, his choice of whom to honor as the high school teacher who made the biggest impact in his life was an easy one: his mother, Julie Kowalewski.

He was one of 33 outstanding seniors recognized May 24 at the 29th annual Merrill Presidential Scholars Convocation luncheon.  Read more about the 2017 Merrill Presidential Scholars Program.
