Sending thanks to STEM students

Bay Ridge

Golden compasses all around to students in the Biomedical Science STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) course at Xaverian High School. The Pi boys raised more than $3,500 for Breast Cancer vaccine research through the sale of Pi Day T-shirts on March 14, for those who don’t know.

The students, alum President Robert Alesi, and Principal Dcn. Kevin McCormack presented the check to Dr. Vincent Tuohy, a researcher at the Cleveland Clinic’s Learner Research Institute and an alum of Xaverian, Class of ‘65.

Before the presentation Dr. Tuohy gave an informative lecture to the students about his quest to discover a vaccine to fight this dreaded disease.

Standing O says thanks to the 14th power, to the students, and to Dr. Tuohy for his dedication in research.
