Sachem High School North senior Isabella Martinalbert and Sachem High School East senior Andrew Scavo have been chosen to receive the full-tuition Stanford scholarship from Long Island University Post for their outstanding academic achievements and participation in the Virtual Enterprise International class.

Isabella is an active participant in student government, a member of the yearbook committee and a member of the color guard for the Sachem Flaming Arrows Marching Band. In addition to her participation in extracurricular activities, Isabella is enrolled in multiple Advanced Placement classes, including economics, literature and calculus. Isabella plans to attend LIU Post where she will major in accounting before pursuing her master’s degree in business administration. 

Excelling throughout his time at Sachem, Andrew is a member of the varsity baseball team, a member of student government and the Buddies Club. Beginning his college education with a head start, Andrew has already received 30 college credits from enrollment and successful completion of many Advanced Placement classes such as calculus, physics, economics and English. Andrew remains undecided where he will attend college, but plans to pursue a degree in either finance or accounting. 

“Being involved in the finance department in our Virtual Enterprise class has helped solidify my choice to continue on with finance in college,” Andrew said. “Virtual Enterprise allowed me to break out of the traditional classroom experience and apply real-world ideas and creativity to our work.” 

Also recognized for his participation in the Virtual Enterprise program, Sachem High School East senior Nicholas Camoia has been offered a partial scholarship to LIU Post. Nicholas is undecided where he will attend college but is focused on obtaining a degree in a business-related field.   

To be considered for the Stanford scholarship, students must have participated in the Virtual Enterprise International class, have at least a 92 unweighted high school average and a SAT score of 1250.
