Academic All-Star

Congratulations to Isaac Graber who was named an Academic All-Star by the Commercial Appeal today.  The award confirms what we all knew to be true already - that Isaac ranks amongst the truly exceptional students in our region both for his accomplishments inside and outside the classroom.

Here is their write-up that appeared in the Sunday paper:

Isaac, a senior, exemplifies the Renaissance Man. By his involvement in and contributions to a variety of social, cultural and educational organizations, he has been exposed to diverse communities. He holds a 5.19 weighted grade point average and scored 2240 on the SAT. Currently slated to be the valedictorian of his class, Isaac is a National Merit Commended Student and member of the National Honor Society. He has taken seven AP courses and 25 Honors classes. As a junior, he received the Yale Book Award for outstanding potential. As president of the Student Council, Isaac plans many school events. He also leads the engineering team as they compete in the TEAMS competition at the University of Arkansas. After attending the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) High School Summit in Washington in 2011, Isaac discovered a passion for Israel and Israel advocacy. He has made it his mission to educate his peers and the community about Israel. After Isaac attended the BridgeBuilder’s Summer Leadership Conference, he became very involved and now collaborates with other young Memphians committed to diversity.
