Sachem High School East senior Mark Benesh has received the Award of Excellence from the National Academy of Future Scientists and Technologists. 

As a recipient of this award, Mark was chosen to attend the Congress of Future Science and Technology Leaders as a delegate representing High School East. Selected students are recommended by their teacher or guidance counselor for leadership ability, academic achievement and dedication to science and technology while also holding a GPA of 3.5 or above. 

The three-day conference, held in Lowell, Massachusetts, includes a collection of seminars lead by Nobel Prize winners and industry-leading inventors. The annual conference draws more than 1,000 students from across the country. 

Mark plans to further his science and technology knowledge by studying earth science and physics in college, with the hope of becoming a science educator himself.
