JECA Valedictorian Wins Gates Scholarship

Duy Ha wins Gates scholarship

Judson Early College Academy's Valedictorian Duy Ha is not only the recipient of a full-ride scholarship to Rice University but now he's just found out he has been awarded the very prestigious Gates Scholarship. Just to put it in perspective, only 300 students across the country each year are selected to receive this scholarship. He has been a stellar student overall, but has exhibited exceptional math skills that he has been using to help other students in the Converse area. We congratulate him and wish him the best of luck.
