Last Week In Review

Way to go, Moira!

Our very own Moira MacCatherine was named a Flinn Scholarship Finalist! What a fantastic accomplishment!


The Flinn Scholars Program has named 39 of the state’s highest-achieving students as Flinn Finalists, advancing them to the final round of interviews for the Flinn Scholarship. The scholarship, valued at more than $120,000, includes funding for tuition, housing, meals, and study abroad at one of Arizona’s three public state universities.
