Hannah Wool, a senior at TMI, was among area students recognized Oct. 23 at a Harvard Club of San Antonio barbecue in honor of 2016 student and faculty Harvard Prize Book recipients. TMI math teacher Travis Waddington, Ph.D., also was honored as a faculty recipient.
Attended by area alumni and their families, the gathering was held at the Terrell Hills home of a club member. The Harvard Prize Books are awarded annually to outstanding students in the next-to-graduating high-school class who display excellence in scholarship and high character, combined with achievement in other fields.
Donated by Harvard Clubs, prize books are presented annually in nearly 2,000 secondary schools around the world to help attract the attention of talented students to the opportunities at Harvard College. Participating schools are chosen by local Harvard clubs; recipients are nominated by their schools, and the awards are presented at the end of the academic year.
