FA Announces 25 New Inductees to the National Honor Society
We are pleased to announce the induction of 25 new members to the B.W. Tinker Chapter of the National Honor Society on Monday, March 21st.
Membership in the National Honor Society is one of the highest honors in the U.S. that can be awarded to a high school student. The B.W. Tinker Chapter of NHS works diligently to bring the accomplishments of outstanding students to the attention of parents, teachers, peers, and the community. Along with the more than 15,000 chapters in schools across the nation, the B.W. Tinker Chapter strives to give practical meaning to member selection in accordance with the Society's standards of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. Students are not inducted simply because of a high academic average but rather are recognized for excelling in all of these areas.

For a second consecutive year, Fryeburg Academy students placed in the top rankings in the Biomimicry Institute's 2021-22 Biomimicry Challenge. The team placed first last year with their MorphoBrick concept; they placed second this year, out of 125 competing teams from 12 countries, with their Syntrichia Hydrotrap design concept.
FA's Biomimicry Challenger team, led by FA faculty member Jennifer Richardson, includes the following students: Yuna Lee '23, Grace Liu '23, Daryna Serediuk '22, May Shin '23, Stella Yoon '22, and Zoe Jung '22. This year's challenge was an advanced STEM-based competition that essentially had two goals: first, the design was required to model the structural and functional adaptation of at least one living organism. Secondly, the design needed to identify an environmental problem and propose a sustainable solution.
