Michael Rhodes was recently named the recipient of the John D. Vadney Mathematics Scholarship Award at FM.  This $2,500 scholarship, the largest offered to a FM student, is awarded to a student who appreciates Mathematics as a field of study in its own right and has demonstrated interest, commitment, understanding, and high academic ability in upper level FM Mathematics courses. The recipient must also plan to continue his or her studies at a higher level institution in Mathematics, Physics, or Engineering.

Rhodes will be graduating from FM this May with an Engineering Science degree and plans to further his education at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Florida.  His goal is to one day work for Boeing to design airplanes.  “I really respect the accomplishments of Alan Mulally, President and CEO of the Ford Motor Company,” says Rhodes.  “He began his career with Boeing; he’s an inspiration.”

Michael is a graduate of Wells High School and is a resident of Piseco, New York.
