Mr. Khayyo was nominated by Assistant Professor of Chemistry Dr. Andrea Minei as the College’s most outstanding student in a freshman-level chemistry course. The nomination was based on scholastic performance, laboratory aptitude, and probability of pursuing a career in the chemical sciences.
Students from more than 10 colleges and universities in and around Westchester County – including New York University, Fordham University, Pace University, Iona College, Mercy College, Manhattan College, and College of New Rochelle – were also recognized. The award consists of a certificate and a copy of the CRC handbook of chemistry and physics.
