    They represent the thin percentage of students whose drive, discipline and dedication combine to push them to achieve far more than their peers.

    While good grades are the pursuit of the majority within their classes, great is the mark they set and expect of themselves. And their hard work, tenacity and accomplishments are rewarded in very special ways. They are among the academic elite of their generation.
